City Series – Muskan Nayyar in Ludhiana, We the Isolationists (143rd Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Muskan Nayyar]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see a light reminding us to breathe. I see every force reminding us that we had gone too far.
I see how my grandfather had shared similar stories about the stillness descended in Punjab as a state when the wide curfew was imposed in 1984.
I see how my grandfather had experienced long-distance friendships at the time of partition.
I see myself reminding that this stillness is nothing as compared to what they had gone through but here I see myself filled with guilt but kind of free for writing this down.
