People have been saying that the pandemic has brought time to a standstill. But I disagree. For me, it’s the measurement of time that has momentarily suspended. Time is still here—flitting as the past, expectant as the future, slipping as the present.
When the COVID-19 pandemic began I was in Delhi absolutely terrified. Luckily I was able to return home right before the lockdown was announced. This unexpected period has bought a lot of disruptions but also awareness. For now, I am taking it one day at a time, thankful for whatever good comes my way. These pictures capture mundane moments that I am immensely grateful for.
