“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”. – Mahatma Gandhi
Legal Aid Society of DME law school took up an initiative of helping the stranded labours in Delhi NCR. Nationwide lockdown had its effect on every sector of the economy, but the worst effected were the labourers. These labourers came to Delhi NCR from different parts of India, there problems were severe because they were fighting the pandemic as well as poverty. Home Ministry advised the state governments to make certain arrangements for safe passage of labours that are stuck in different states that’s when we stepped in and tried to assist the labours to fill out forms or work out an arrangement with the administration to make their travel uninterrupted. There were different arrangements for different states hence it was a challenge for us to enrol the subjects accordingly and the immense crowd made things even harder, but with perseverance we eventually made out a way which was systematic, with a word of caution with the concerned faculties we proceeded with the work. We all enthusiastically took up this work under the instructions of Mukesh Kalwani sir and Kush Kalra sir.
MECHANISM OF WORK
Due the Covid 19 situation it was difficult to go out and help the needy, our team worked from their respective homes with several Ngo’s who gave us the data of the stranded person in different parts of Delhi NCR, we divided the contacts amongst ourselves and got started with the assistance the priority was to fill out the forms that were offered for the special “Shramik special” trains that were started to help them, if that arrangement was unavailable we directed them to bus stands in Ghaziabad from where inter districts busses were available for the state of UP.The following are the details of migrants shared by the team member with the assistance provided to them from their end.

The above mentioned person along with 40 others were stranded at Anand Vihar ISBT Bus stand with their family. I filled railway’s form on his behalf and at the same time directed them to Kaushambi bus stand in Ghaziabad from which there were several Intrastate buses dropping the distressed labourers back to their respective home towns.

ANKIT MISHRA (STUDENT OF BA.LLB, 4TH YEAR, SECTION C)
As the student convenor of this cell I had the huge responsibility of allotment of task to the members and their follow ups, my call lists were flooded with unknown mobile numbers of people who needed assistance. I personally worked with Yasser in the east Vinod Nagar camp, we went together and personally talked with the officials to know the whereabouts of the stranded. We made a list of the 200 workers with their contacts. Some were of UP and others belonged to Bihar. I personally have talked to every number that was provided and according to the locality of the member we allotted him the task. As the members of this cell are from diverse areas of Delhi NCR we were both physically and mentally prepared to give the required assistance to the stranded.
The only challenge during this whole journey was to gather up the contact details of needy, as nobody wanted to risk their well-being for this noble cause but with the support of NGO’s of Mr. Dhruv Gupta and Ms. Simran Khanna, we were able to furnish that information. The whole exercise was conceptualised by Mukesh sir and duly coordinated and supervised by Kush sir.
Name of stranded person- Jagjivan
Location: AnandVihar ISBT
Aadhar Card No.463532730205
This person was stranded on AnandVihar ISBT for two days and was looking up options for going to his hometown in Faizabad, he had already filled the Shramik special form but there was no reply, hence he was directed to Laal Kuan bus stand in Ghaziabad to board the bus going to his hometown.
But even with the inspiration of others, it’s understandable that we sometimes think the world’s problems are so big that we can do little to help. On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine.
Indian migrant workers during the COVID-19 pandemic have faced multiple hardships. With factories and workplaces shut down due to the lockdown imposed in the country, millions of migrant workers had to deal with the loss of income, food shortages and uncertainty about their future. Following this, many of them and their families went hungry. Thousands of them then began walking back home, with no means of transport due to the lockdown.
With this belief and doing something on my end I decided to help migrant worker to reach there home by filling their forms which is generated by the government.
One should be kind and helpful as much as he can.

Lockdown doesn’t stop the training and development process at DME. Online training for students was conducted by Mentoring Cell organised by Rubicon in collaboration with Barclays. It indeed helped the students of this section to enhance their life skills in a way that would definitely help them advance in their career. The students were more than enthusiastic to be a part of this training and they did actively interact, ask questions and participated in all the activities that the trainer organised in each particular day.
The activities ranged from improving their analytical skills (for example the SWOT analysis students were asked to do of various companies), their presentation skills (when they had to make a PPT on the same), their personality (by asking them to do a 16 yardstick personality test and explaining to them what each personality type meant), their public speaking skills ( by asking them to answer and encouraging them to do confidently) etc. The personal interview and the one on one interaction that the trainer did with the students help them prepare for any future interview lined up for them. She even shared with them the tips and tricks to ace an interview. Therefore, the training did groom the law students of the penultimate year for any future endeavour.
