Government imposed lockdown had left Rajendra, an auto rickshaw driver without work and pay. The wounds of the previous lockdown itself hadn’t healed when another lockdown queued up. He had no clue on how to manage monthly expenditure. His wife and old mother fear that they won't be able to survive without a meal.
But they don’t need to worry about going hungry anymore. Thanks to Kamal Fincap who offered a one month ration kit to the auto rickshaw driver's family struck by hunger.
