City Series – Parneet Purewal in Bangalore, We the Isolationists (172nd Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Parneet Purewal]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see my aging parents, I see my mother cooking, cleaning and trying to control her tears each time I call her. In the pursuit of finding the right job, one forgets about simple things, parents need you and aging parents need you even more.
I close my eyes and I see my husband, sitting 1000 kms away for me and dreaming about the beautiful beaches in Praslin island, where we were supposed to be on our honeymoon today.
I close my eyes and realize that life is so fragile, and everything can be lost in the blink of an eye.
