migrant workers

Alumni from Bengaluru’s National Law School of India University (NLSIU) have come together to raise funds and provide food donations to migrant workers returning to their hometowns in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We wanted to resolve the problems we saw on the news and make a difference in some way,” said Rabindra Jhunjhunwala, a partner at Khaitan & Co and part of the group.

Moved by the struggles impoverished workers faced as a result of job losses, money shortages and arduous journeys home, the NLSIU group last month set a goal of fundraising ₹6 million (US$80,000) to provide food kits for 100,000 people boarding the special shramik (worker) trains home.

Along with Jhunjhunwala, the core NLSIU group comprised alumni Sameera Vasudeva, Yash Asher (partner, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas), Poornima Sampath (vice president, legal, at Tata Sons), Gopal Sankaranarayanan (senior advocate, Supreme Court) and Saikrishna Rajagopal (founder of Saikrishna & Associates).
