The social distance called ‘privilege’.

For thousands of migrant workers and their families, this has been ‘The Longest March’ indeed – 31 days in a month too harsh, hundreds of kilometres in a walk too long.

At a time when more than 20 such migrants have lost their lives on this arduous journey back home, here is a stark reminder.

What do you call the difference
Between the haves, and the have-nots
Between those working from home, and those walking back home
Between those who are ‘dying to go out’, and those who are really dying?

You call it the social distance of ‘privilege’.

Socially distant.
Socially distant.
