City Series – Aakanksha R Gautam in Delhi, We the Isolationists (30th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Aakanksha R Gautam]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see the yellow flowers on the sidewalk of Firozshah road.
I see people sipping chai at tapri I regularly visit, and their discussions turning into debates.
Sun is setting, but shining. I see my favourite face, smiling and approaching me swiftly. I see his honey eyes and his curved lips, my eyes closes before a soft kiss.
And now, when I open them, it all vanishes, like it never happened. The tapri must be quiet. But I hope those yellow flowers are still blooming strong.
