Covid Hits Coolies Hard!

New Delhi: Those who have shouldered our baggages for so long, are finding it difficult to bear the burden of their families.

Due to the devastating second wave of the COVID pandemic and imposed lockdown, coolies at the New Delhi Railway Station (NDRS) have been badly impacted. Coolies are more worried, as passengers at the railway station are unwilling to take their services due to fear of contracting the coronavirus.

Unable to cope with the situation of the lockdown and the pandemic, Railway porters are now seeking financial assistance.

Close to 1,478 coolies are there at the NDRS and they all are struggling to earn enough for a day. And this holds true for all people in the profession in the nooks and corners of the country.

“Earlier we used to earn around 200 to 300 per day, but now even that has stopped completely.
We are craving for tea, and running the house has become very difficult now. We need help,” a coolie, Chand Mohammad was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“During this pandemic, we have been going to bed on an empty stomach. If someone gives us something to eat, we eat. Otherwise we have to go hungry for several days. There is a lot of trouble at home too.” another collie said.

Through this crisis, porters are seeking help from NGOs, social workers and political parties that bring daily meals for them.

Pawan Kumar, a coolie at the station said, “For the past year, our work is completely stopped. It started earlier this year after a lockdown but has again stopped. Today, the youth congress workers gave us food kits for our house which will last for a few days.”

Indian Youth Congress President Srinivas BV distributed food packets to the coolies at NDRS after receiving call for help.

  1. The heart of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not really sit very well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do well to help fill in those gaps. When you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be fascinated.

  2. You can certainly see your skills within the work you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as
    you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times
    follow your heart.

  7. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
