A sore spot for South Asian history has been its borders. With the job market falling short, India’s workforce explores employment beyond borders, but not without adverse repercussions. Tourists and migrant workers are easy targets for scamsters in foreign countries. The duping of vulnerable citizens, sudden loss of employment, arbitrary annulment of marriage, expiry of visas or simply straying across porous borders, has led to many citizens getting stranded outside the borders of India - waiting to be rescued. Meet the community hero Syed Abid Hussain, who is not your average social worker in Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, but acts as a good samaritan to help such people in dire need.
