The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill and many nations are trying their best to combat this virus. The impact has brought down the global economy and many countries are trying their best to recover from the loss inflicted by COVID-19. 

The unprecedented exodus of the migrant workers has left the nation stunned as their suffering has been too huge.

The lockdown has made it difficult for all to earn bread and butter in cities and with no hope left, migrants are moving to their hometown. Social media is abuzz with pictures and videos showcasing their misery. 

Recently, Anupam Kher too dedicated a post to the migrants as he recited a poem by Shadab Zafar. Shekhar Kapur responded to Kher's tweet and spoke about India's economic growth.

Taking to his twitter handle, Anupam Kher in his tweet wrote, "Their pain, their misery, their sufferance. Why did it take us a pandemic to feel their agony??Why didn’t we always value them?? Let’s come together to save them. Let’s stand united to help them go back to their homes!! #MigrantWorkers #PoemByShadabZafarShadab." 

To this, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur responded saying, "Indian Economy has been built on the shoulders of the very people that we have abandoned. Without them, the economic rise of India is an illusion."

Not just this, Shekhar also shared an image of a mother giving bath to an infant on-road and spoke about how we have all neglected laborers all this while. He wrote, "Which one of us have not seen images like these everyday in Mumbai. On our way to work by road or by train. Everyday. And did we not realise they were migrant labourers? We are all complicit #Covid_19."

Meanwhile, several celebrities have come ahead to help provide necessary rations for the people affected by the lockdown.
