We wanna go home, we feel more safe there..when we decide to come to the city, we thought we make more money and live better, educate our kids much better way than in our villages. But today the uncertainty putting us down. No clarity from authorities. True we are anonymous, there is no records about us, we were working and serving, earning and living, voting for all elections. We too part of this constituencies. They become leaders after we  decided. Now we feel,  no one cares us. No one asking us where are we going, why and How? Sir am sure, we reach our home one day and start a new life there. True they will, am not sure how many made to their home, again no records.
