City Series – Bageshwer Singh in Jalandhar, We the Isolationists (312th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Bageshwar Singh]
I close my eyes in self isolation from corona… and I see that it was all merry. Birds courted, amaltas bloomed, lilies rained. Even caterpillars ate much of my avocado leaves. Air cleared. I wondered what they meant, when they said ‘everything will be stopped’? What was ‘everything’? It seemed fine.
The news were scary. I missed my friends. They seemed too far. How could i have joined them, exploring fruits in jungles?
Flowers bloomed, but where? There weren’t many in my room.
The spring was, after all, silent.
Because, everything had stopped.
