Sab Khairiyat Hai Na (Is all well with you?) is a series of conversations over the phone with a motley group of our listeners who share their experiences of being caught in the Covid-19 storm.
People share their stories of surviving the first, suddenly announced, unplanned lockdown. The wait for food, for salaries, the loss of work, the fear of the virus, of the police, of the future.
People talk of how they finally made their way back home.
It started about a week ago, perhaps around May 11, 2020. We had been receiving calls into the live broadcast for several weeks, desperate calls, people asking for food, for help, for trains or buses to go home. For help in getting their held-back salaries. We would give out helpline numbers, nodal officers’ numbers, and links where people could register for transport. But many would call back and say, the helpline is not responsive, rations are not being delivered, their names are not being called for trains or buses.

As India completes nearly one month of an enforced lockdown, it has become evident that the stresses of losing livelihoods, and incomes, forced isolation and cramped family quarters, is leading to monumental psycho-social symptoms among people, especially the poor, which is also reflected in the huge spike in domestic violence and child abuse complaints in one month alone.
To provide a support system to our listeners at this time of stress, Gurgaon Ki Awaaz, in partnership with Rajbala Foundation, takes its on-going Udaan series, and turns its lens on counseling during the Covid-19 lockdown.

New Delhi: For nearly a month now, a government vehicle has been ferrying a young reporter from a community radio station to and fro her recording studio in Sector 31, Gurugram. Preeti Jhakra has been playing the all-important role of linking a large number of people, especially migrant labourers working in a 10-km radius around the studio, to schemes and plans of the city administration designed to combat COVID-19 spread.
The Gurugram Administration has been releasing regular health bulletins outlining number of people tested, number of positive cases, and any Covid-19-related deaths, if any.
These bulletins can be found on the Gurugram administration website.
