City Series – Komal Sharma in Vadodara, We the Isolationists (251st Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Komal Sharma]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see chai stalls. We, my friends and I, would meet in the afternoon after lectures, most of the time we didn’t go to lectures… we just came out of our homes to drink chai.
From one stall to another,
chal aaj Suresh Bhai,
nahi Ganesh Bhai ke waha chairs hai.
While drinking chai all sorts of speculations hit, the butt which claps when we jump, my ears developing ear muscles because of the piercings. College had been a struggle, it was a recent achievement to have found a space where I was happy. I’d like to see my chai gang again.
