DG Reading Club: Exodus in India


We dive into a fascinating story from issue 39 about how Covid-19 caused a staggering exodus of India’s workers, with hundreds of thousands fleeing cities to walk to their home villages after a national lockdown left them unable to buy food or pay the rent. The article’s author, Nadia Nooreyezdan, tells us how she set about researching the story, what it felt like to speak to the people who took this dangerous journey, and how the story has developed since she finished her reporting. Including:

  • The invisibility of India’s internal migrants
  • Islamophobia and the pandemic
  • The challenges of distributing vaccines in India
