UTTAR PRADESH: Nepali migrant workers staying at a shelter home in Dhaurhara in Lakhimpur district of India are now attending Yoga classes and motivational lectures to help them overcome depression.

The migrants have been staying in a school since March 31 after the Nepal border was closed due to lockdown.

Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Sunandu Sudhakaran said that the migrants were getting increasingly depressed and were experiencing anxiety disorders due to monetary tension and family issues.

“We then decided to arrange for motivational and Yoga sessions for them with the support of a Yoga guru. While practicing Yoga, we ensured that social distancing was maintained and all of them wore a mask,” he said.

Sudhakaran said that the Nepali migrants did not create any problems and have been staying in harmony at the shelter home.

The official said that first one or two sessions, the migrants felt better and looked happier.

The migrants are now looking forward to returning to their homes after the Centre allowed movement of migrants and students on Wednesday.
