City Series – Ritika Parwal in Jaipur, We the Isolationists (60th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Ritika Parwal]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see my 5 year old son, Daksh… wondering what he must be doing this very moment and if this is all too overwhelming for him.
I close my eyes and imagine him with me, spending all these moments together, enjoying our isolation. I pray for this to get over soon and for us to evolve into better human beings. The biggest tragedy will be if we come out of it unchanged. I close my eyes and thank God for all the privileges, yet feel a deep void and pray for Daksh to be fine.
