In the 40th video dispatch in the StoriesAsia On The Road series, our reporters met with homeless people from various religious backgrounds who were living together in Delhi’s Yamuna Pushta area. They were facing starvation during the initial days of the COVID-19 lockdown. Yet they were gladly sharing whatever little food they had with each other. The reporters also spoke to a man who was HIV Positive and living with others without having to hide that he had AIDS. The reporters asked if poverty brings them together and insulates them against disputes and discrimination that are commonplace among those who are more fortunate?
** “On the Road” is a new series by StoriesAsia on the Coronavirus outbreak where we bring you stories that help you respond to this ongoing historic pandemic.
