As part of everyday life, countless people in India are forced to beg for a rupee or two for food. They gathered by the thousands, in the marketplaces - at the train and bus stations and in the street. But now; there are no trains, no busses, the crowds are gone, the nation is in total lockdown. Now all that remains is desperation. The most immediate danger is not from the coming medical crisis, it's the certainty that unless they can find food and supplies, thousands - even millions will quickly weaken, fall sick and die. Already, we see the start of what we know will only get worse; people young and old, desperately searching for food… And as is always the case, it's the children and elderly who suffer most.
