I don’t have the right to complain about my problems, says Manoj
Unable to resist himself from penning down a few lines about the situation of migrants in our country during the Covid-19 crisis, actor Manoj Bajpayee took to Instagram recently, to express his thoughts. Ask what prompted him, and he says, “There is nothing to explain about the situation of migrants. But I know that each and everyone is quite troubled by the visuals they see on social media. That’s a thought that came to my mind. so I tried to explain what I am thinking.”
In fact, Bajpayee, 51, says that his problems seem meagre in front of the hurdles that the migrant workers are facing. He adds, “When I see visuals of migrants on the road, with little children and women, I feel I don’t have the right to crib, I feel small talking about my lockdown problems.”
Stuck in Uttarakhand for more than two months now, Bajpayee, along with his wife, Neha, and daughter Ava, were able to go trekking, until now, but he admits to having reached a saturation point. “Earlier, we would trek on nearby mountains, but you can’t keep doing that for two months. Then, Ava rescued six puppies, so we got busy with finding a home for them. They all got adopted, and these are the little victories one can celebrate, during this lockdown,” he says.
