City Series – Mahan Aslam in Turbat, Balochistan, Pakistan, We the Isolationists (434th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Mahan Aslam]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona and I see things that I’d planned turning into exactly opposite. The dreams for this year are on a halt. The exams that I had been working hard for aren’t even going to happen anytime soon. But, in this uproar, I learned something beautiful: “Things aren’t always going to work the way we want them to, but as they are planned.”
“We the Isolationists” series urges folks from any part of the world to share a brief diary starting with “I close my eyes in my self-isolation from Corona… and I see…” Not more than 100 words. With a horizontal-sized selfie, along with your city name… please mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
