City Series – Poushali Chakraborty in Calcutta, We the Isolationists (425th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Poushali Chakraborty]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona and I see things which ‘were’ so close but yet so far ‘now’.
But there again I see myself living a life which remains a dream for many otherwise.
I see my dream vacay with my aging parents gradually biting the dust.
Yet grateful for getting to spend such time with my precious ones.
I see my career goals leaving the driver’s seat.
Yet thankful enough for a roof above and enough food to eat.
I see myself finally, living the essence, they call LIFE.
