Ganesh Bhatt, a resident of the village Bhallegoan, District Tehri Garhwal stands for a portrait next to his Tata Nano car. One resident of the village called the car, "the lifeline of their region". During the lockdown period, Ganesh turned his car into an emergency vehicle carrying patients to the hospital, helping the elderly with ration and medical supplies and at times, dropping walking migrant workers to their respective villages. During Janta Curfew starting March 22, the National Highway 58 ( NH-58) a 538 km long road running across three states; Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand was closed, with no public or private passenger vehicle running at that time. Ganesh’s car was on the road making 2-4 trips a day for 42 days, sometimes at night too. The nearest hospital from Bhallegoan is 20kms.
