It’s been nearly 2 years since India went under lockdown for the first time owing the Covid-19 pandemic. No one knew what was happening. We were all scrambling for our daily essentials. Near and dear ones were falling ill. Our doctors were relentlessly working 24×7 to save lives. Millions of migrant workers were displaced. Many people lost their jobs.
There have been a number of people in our lives who have helped us in some way during the pandemic. Let’s take this opportunity to celebrate and salute them for their unconditional support.
Share a story of your pandemic hero without a cape in our facebook group! This is a campaign for children only (yes, parents can help their smallies write their stories)
