NEW DELHI: Chanchal Devi’s three children haven’t tasted milk for almost a year.

新德里:尚沙勒德维(Chanchal Devi的三个孩子几乎一年没喝过牛奶了。

The staple was among items the 35-year-old and her husband could no longer afford after they both first lost work when India’s capital New Delhi went into lockdown in March last year. Their distress deepened after this April due to a surge in Covid-19 infections. They’re now borrowing money to buy food and must watch their school-aged kids eat less, often going to bed on empty stomachs.

去年3月印度首都新德里实行封锁后,35岁的她和丈夫都失去了工作,他们再也买不起牛奶了。今年4月后,由于新冠感染病例激增,他们的痛苦加深了。他们现在借钱买食物,只能看着正在上学的孩子吃得更少,经常饿着肚子上床睡觉。

“I can’t sleep at nights,” said Chanchal from her home in Lal Gumbad Basti, a neighborhood of migrant workers about 20 minutes away from the nation’s parliament. “I’m so tired of worrying about arranging the next meal.”

“我晚上睡不着,”尚沙勒在家中说。“每天都要为安排下一顿饭而烦恼,我已经厌倦了。”

Families like Chanchal’s — two wage earners with some savings, living in rented accommodation — are among legions of Indians who saw their economic toehold ripped away in lockdowns over the last 12 months. More than 15 million Indians lost their jobs in May alone at the height of a devastating wave that overwhelmed hospitals and crematoriums, according to the Centre for Mon oring the Indian Economy.

尚沙勒这样的家庭——两个有一些储蓄的工薪阶层,住在租来的房子里——在过去12个月里,是大批印度人中的一员,他们眼睁睁地看着自己的经济立足点在封锁中被摧毁。根据印度经济监测中心的数据,仅在5月份,就有超过1500万印度人失去工作,毁灭性的疫情导致医院和火葬场不堪重负。

All of that is leading to an increase in hunger, particularly in urban areas, in a nation that already accounts for nearly a third of the world’s malnourished people. While few statistics are available, migrants and workers at food distribution centers in major Indian cities say they can’t remember seeing lines this long of people yearning for something to eat.

所有这些导致饥饿人数的增加,特别是在城市地区,印度的营养不良人口已经占全世界的近三分之一。虽然没有什么统计数据,但在印度主要城市的食品配送中心工作的移民和工人表示,从未见过人们排这么长的队,只为了吃点东西。

“This desperation for food and the long lines for rations in families with two wage earners is unprecedented,” said Aditi Dwivedi, who works with migrant communities in the capital at Satark Nagrik Sangathan, a group that works on transparency and accountability in go nment that has advocated for more food aid for the needy.

Aditi Dwivedi在首都Satark Nagrik Sangathan的移民社区工作。Satark Nagrik Sangathan是一个致力于提高政府透明度和制的组织,倡导为贫困人口提供更多粮食援助。他说:“对于工薪家庭来说,这种对食物的渴望是前所未有的,也从没见过人们为领取粮食如此大排长龙”
