6th March 2022 Dear Anand, It’s been raining for 2 weeks now. It has been one of the wettest years since 1900. The kind of rain that brings endings. Early morning today when the skies took a pause to sigh, I slipped out onto the inner streets weaving through the neighbourhood; passing by rows and rows of houses slowly waking up, the last rain drops … Continue reading 6th March 2022 | Dear Anand
