Masked Heroes- Shram Ko Naman

Amidst the rising death toll due to COVID-19, the cremation of Corona-affected bodies has become the task no one wants to take up. As a result of their marginalised status, the migrant workers have drawn the short stick as they brave their way in crematoriums across the city. This photo essay seeks to capture their story and draw attention to their a valuable contribution to society while working at crematoriums in this pandemic.
They say Superheroes have capes and suits, so do these workers. Behind the green masks are faces of warriors fighting the virus and taking on challenges no one wants to. Unfortunately, like their faces, their identities and contribution also remain hidden and masked. Salute to these hidden heroes and their brave contribution to our society.
