Coronavirus has put forth an undeniable example of a maid and the mistress’s dependence on each other. When the country-wide lockdown was declared and the domestic helpers were disallowed to come to home and work, that white-knuckled mistress/master as well as the helpers. At the same time, the question of whether the workers should be allowed in or not also became a trend. So, what was so big about it? Why did the dilemma sprout out? Because of the Interdependence of the maid and the mistress or the master. As per official estimates, more than 4m humans are working as domestic helpers in middle-class and high-society Indian homes. And if we go for unofficial estimation, above 50m people are domestic helpers, among which 2/3rd are women. Working in homes is an opportunity for domestic helpers to earn a living and for master or mistress, it helps them run the homes smoothly. This underlines the interdependent relationship between the maid and the "mistress/master”.
