Hi. Happy Monday folks! It’s been 20 days since the lockdown in India, and tomorrow we are likely going to have an announcement about what our next couple of weeks is going to look like.
Well, for me, my days are spent at home as it is. As someone without a job for a year now (check #SalmanNeedsAJob), I am pretty accustomed to this quarantined life. While I have my podcast, and this newsletter going on, I spend rest of my time scrolling through what everyone else on the internet is up to during this lockdown. And, I am happy to let you know that I have begun showcasing these stories on @lettersaboutcovid19 Instagram.
Here’s one from Apurv Sharma, locked down in Lucknow, India.
