People Are Walking Miles To Reach Home And Dying, This Is Inhuman: Arindam Sil
Lockdown across the country has forced migrant workers to go back to their hometown. But as the state borders closed, they are walking miles to reach their home. Pictures and visuals of workers walking are flashing on television and are viral on social media. Maaya Kumari director Arindam Sil calls it inhuman.

The director took to his micro-blogging site and tweeted, “My country people are walking hundreds of miles to reach home and they are dying .... nothing can be more inhuman than this. Yeh hai mera India. #Coronavirus has attacked the world and India is not the only country with migrant workers. This has been the most painful effect.”

Recently, many celebrities have voiced their opinion on this issue. Migrant workers are leaving for their work as everything is closed to ensure there is no further spread of the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the director has now announced his next film titled Mahananda which will be based on Bengali writer Mahasweta Devi. The film will see actress Gargee Roychowdhury in the tutorial role. The other cast includes Ishaa Saha and Gaurav Chakrabarty. The script is co-written by Subhendu Dasmunshi and Arindam Sil.

The film will be focusing not only the life of Mahasweta Devi but her works too. Mahasweta Devi was a Bengali writer and a socio-political activist. Her works includes Hajar Churashir Maa, Rudali, and Aranyer Adhikar. She had worked for the rights and empowerment of the tribal people.
