Editor's note

Rahul Ramanthan is a student of Class 8 at Anand Niketan School (Satellite) in Ahmedabad. When he read the story about a group of migrants who had walked 800 kilometres to reach home, he was inspired to create this illustration. He says: “I was reading the story and felt like making an illustrative map for it.” His detailed map with towns, railway tracks and rivers is based on ‘It was as if the whole country was walking’ by Jaideep Hardikar for PARI, published on January 5, 2021.
