At one point, Chandan Kumar, his elder brother Suraj, who is a salesman, and father Kamlesh, a mechanic, together made a monthly income of Rs 30,000. The lockdown has rendered all three jobless.
The family is left with Rs 12,000 and some food reserves. My brother and father can start working again when normalcy returns, but I am staring at a dark future as tourists are unlikely to come back to Bodh Gaya before the year-end.
The government should provide me alternate livelihood, says Kumar.
