The coronavirus pandemic put India's population of 1.3 billion into an extreme and sudden lockdown.

Social entrepreneur Gayathri Vasudevan explains how the situation is impacting the country's migrant workers, who are stuck far from home with limited access to food and shelter, and calls for an overhaul of India's social infrastructure in order to get people the essentials they need right now.
