City Series – Prateek Gulati in Delhi, We the Isolationists (127th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Prateek Gulati]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see Gulmohar 2, my room in my college campus that I could never say goodbye to properly because I left in a jiff. I close my eyes and dream of waking up to the overtly sweet coffee of chotta canteen. As I sit here today back home, with my family safe, I wish for them to attend my convocation that probably now won’t take place. I close my eyes and I think about my frivolous loss of memories and quickly get aware of my privilege. Yet I grief.
