Before the lockdown, this 20-year-old used to earn Rs 7000 a month, but now he says that he has earned nothing for the last few months, and most days he has no money to buy food.
“Without any income, my family and I could not pay the Rs 300 rent for the house we were earlier residing in. With the little money we had left, early this month, I sent my parents back to their native village. Now, my younger sister and I stay at my uncle’s home, and he has been providing us with food too.” he mentions.
