We live in an area where a garbage collector carries the colony’s garbage in a huge sack on his back. During the first few days of the lockdown I asked if he had enough rations, and he confirmed that he had. Chatting with him a little longer, we came up with a plan whereby he would take some cash and pick up the essentials later. Then I requested my neighborhood vegetable vendor to give some vegetables to the garbage collector. I wrote a WhatsApp msg asking my friends and family to do the same in their respective areas. I am also grateful that some of them had already done such things in their localities, while others happily agreed.
