Daily wage labourers across the country are perhaps the worst-hit by the 21-day nationwide lockdown imposed to contain the spread of coronavirus. With train and bus services stopped and their homes being far away, many are now walking across states to reach their homes. Some of them are walking day and night.NDTV caught up with one such carpenter who works in Bengaluru and was walking home to Jodhpur, across four states - Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Vija Ram and Banwari started their journey by foot soon after the lockdown was announced on March 24.
