Despite all the negativities and uncertainties, the lockdown has also allowed us more time to interact with our immediate environment. The subject of this image is my younger sister who mostly used to be occupied with mobile and other technological devices before the lockdown. These days she is frequently seen playing with our dog and painting with physical materials and not digitally as before. The lockdown has given my family a break from our busy lives to pick up a new hobby and bond more closely with the people and animals around us.
