Jaipur: A total of 54 migrant workers from Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar redefined quarantine by opting to change the look of their dilapidated quarantine centre, a government school building, by painting it afresh at Palsana village in Rajasthan’s Sikar district.

It was a tough call for these workers to spend 14 days of their quarantine period without doing any kind of work. To keep themselves engaged, they decided to paint the school building where they have been quarantined.

Many village youths extended their helping hands in this unique drive after watching the workers from different states putting fresh strokes of colours on the government school building. Soon the alumni of the school and the villagers collected money to buy more paint to give a facelift to the otherwise dilapidated school building.

According to village sarpanch Roop Singh, “A quarantine center was set up in the village school amid the coronavirus pandemic, in which around 54 labourers were quarantined on April 18. We arranged for their food and water.

“After a few days, the labourers staying there told the villagers that they were hard working people and couldn’t sit idle without doing any task. The workers said they needed to do something at least to digest their food.”

The sarpanch added: “They told us that since we were taking care of them, they needed to give something back to the village, and asked if they could clean up the school building.” (IANS)
