It is day 7 of the lockdown in India and everyone says the skies are blue again. Jamlo walks. She looks straight at the road ahead. It is long. The world has stood still. The streets lie empty and schools are closed. All work has dried up and people keep whispering the word ‘corona’ all the time. Jamlo walks down a long and hot road, alongside hundreds of other men and women and children whom Tara sees on TV. Jamlo walks as Rahul watches the streets turn quiet. Jamlo walks and walks in a world that needs to be kind and just and equal. A world where all lives are seen as important.
