COVID-19; Man, Dogs Sharing Spilt Milk In Agra Shows Lockdown Desperation

Lucknow:  A man and a pack of stray dogs are seen in a scramble for milk spilt on a road in Agra in stomach-churning visuals that speak volumes on the desperation of the country’s poorest during the nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

The image is from this morning on Agra’s Ram Bagh Chauraha when a large milk container overturned, sending a stream of milk down the road, just 6 km from the Taj Mahal. A pack of dogs was joined by a man who is seen trying to scoop up as much of it as he could in a small earthen pot
