Dad at the Verandah

Looking outside into the future which seems distant beyond the eyes or the mind can register. 41 years being a doctor, he has never seen such a catastrophe unfolding, such loss of life, such tragedy but he believes that we can survive this too. Dad talks daily about Covid appropriate behaviour, even when we had a lull after the lockdowns had been lifted,after the first wave. He ensures that his grandkid learns properly to dispose off a mask before entering the house. He looks out from the verandah and minutely looks into each aspects that might protect us and ensures it’s adherence. 

Only if one is aware and follow the Covid appropriate behaviour, in letter and spirit then only we can survive. Just understand this you are not only responsible for you but rest of the humanity as well.

COVID-19 has disrupted the entire economy of these fisherman, they are old to go to the sea by themselves and hence pulls the fishing net back which could give them the fishes to sell in the daily market. I photographed them two and a half years back however, I was unable to continuously document their life. The elder who I photographed around that time remembered me and asked if I had a copy of the photograph I made, which I showed him on my Instagram. He smiled at me and continued to pull the rope. He has lost weight and I made a mental note of making his portraits in the coming days.
