Lockdown effect: Rohtak-based photojournalist Manoj Dhaka starts cow-dairy to make ends meet
Covid-induced lockdown has had a drastic effect on several sectors, media being one of those. A number of journalists and other staffers of media organizations have lost their jobs in the recent months.

Manoj Kumar Dhaka, a Rohtak-based photojournalist who has been working with several English dailies for more than a decade, has started a cow-dairy to make the ends meet in view of the prevailing uncertainty.
“I have been working with three newspapers on a part-time basis. My job-contract with one of them has been terminated. I was expecting a raise from another organisation, but got a salary-cut instead. Hence, my income got reduced considerably. I have now started a cow-dairy to make the ends meet,” says Dhaka
Several other media professionals who have lost their jobs during the ongoing lockdown are also looking for other avenues to earn their livelihood in the testing times.
“It’s an irony that we raise the voice of the people who have been subjected to atrocities or injustice, but we have to accept the unjust treatment meted out to ourselves,” observes another journalist who has been rendered jobless recently.
