Editor's note

This digital illustration was created by Anushka Aurangabadkar, a 2020-22 student of M.Des (Masters in Design) at NIFT Mumbai. She drew inspiration for this piece from several articles on the PARI website – compiled here Covering the human cost of Covid-19 – highlighting the plight of India's agricultural labourers due to the pandemic and the lockdown. 

She says: “ I tried to capture the stories of farmers impacted by the lockdown who don't have the privilege to work from home.”
