City Series – Simran Gauba in Delhi, We the Isolationists (13th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Simran Gauba]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see myself going back two years in time. The hustle and bustle at a metro station and two teen souls trying to make distance work. Tears, smiles, hugs and so much more. Time stopped as they bid goodbyes, last, as it seemed. I open my eyes I reach a rare sight in New Delhi. An empty metro station with no noise. Two not-so teen souls no longer trying, no longer crying, walk away as distance is much better, physically in these times and emotionally this time.
