Ravi Shankar’s son sent messages to relatives, friends and the father’s death in the neighbourhood but none arrived due to the lockdown.
The death of Ravi Shankar further aggravated the unhappy family. There was no one to shoulder the bier and to carry the corpse to the crematorium.
Seeing the plight of the son the Muslims prepared the brief and assisted the body to be taken to a crematorium where the home man Ravi Shankar can rest in peace.
