Doctor is back home after hungry, bone-weary days in Maldives

Kochi: When hunger began gnawing, Dr. Rajashekar had next to nothing to eat before fishing dustbin for bits.

His hard days during the lockdown in Maldives ended only when Indian navy ship rescued him.

Meanwhile, the story of suffering he had shared on social media went viral.

He had been working at a government facility on contract for a year when the contract ended on January 3, and returned home.

Shortly he was offered to renew the contract and immediately he returned to Maldives.

But the renewal got delayed, losing his quarters where he had previously stayed, and moved to a lodge.

It was then COVID-19 began spreading, forcing the shutdown of the nation. It meant spending this saved up money to the last coins, and beginning of misery.

There was no way he could reach out to family or friends back home.

He fell behind with rent, and was heading to penury. Soon he found himself picking food from dustbins.

He shared this experience in a video on social media.

Up on reaching Kochi, and fulfilling tests, Doctor Rajeshekwar headed home to Attingal in a special bus.

The doctor’s harrowing time, who had served during two floods, kept social media chattering away.
