Video of a hungry man drinking milk with stray dogs in India shows the ugly picture of the COVID-19 lockdown
A large container of milk overturned, sending streams down the road, just 6 km away from the Taj Mahal.
In a video that recently went viral on the internet, a man was seen drinking milk with stray dogs on the road in Agra, India. The picture itself shows the struggle of India’s underprivileged during the lockdown, which has been imposed to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The image is from Monday morning on Agra’s Ram Bagh Chauraha. A large container of milk overturned, sending streams down the road, just 6 km away from the Taj Mahal.
The man was joined by a pack of dogs who were trying to drink milk, while he tried to scoop up as much of it as he could in a small earthen pot.
These visuals will globally haunt as corona reminder … https://t.co/GGFurGA7yx

Heartbreaking scenes of hunger from across India
This one from Agra where a poor man is trying to collect milk spilled on the street?
Is it so difficult to feed the hungry when we can plan Namaste Trump so well & spend ₹3cr on flowers for his roadshow?pic.twitter.com/4aWf9iQRpe

Here is how the public reacted to the video:
It’s been 20 days since the lockdown, and a sustainable mechanism to at least feed the hungry is not in place.
Journalists who claim to have the highest morals should cover such stories instead of ostracizing fellow Indians.
That would be a true service to Indians.

This is painful to watch. Poverty is a curse. I pray it becomes a top focus here on. We need to address it.
