Inequality in India has widened drastically since the pandemic. How obscene has it become?
There are now 21 billionaires who own more wealth than 700 million Indians!
Razo Khatoon is one of those 700 million Indians whose lives have been destroyed as a result of the pandemic. She and her husband (a person with disability) used to own and operate a small but successful grocery store together in Sitamarhi, Bihar. The pandemic and her husband's ill-health meant the family fell into poverty. Once a successful business owner, Razo Khatoon and her 3 children were forced to work as daily wage labourers just to make ends meet.
