The whole world is battling a survival crisis. Everyone just seems to have one topic on their mind- Corona. A huge number of forwards, ranging from innovative to informative to infuriating have infiltrated our digital space. Old apocalypse movies are finding themselves in the spotlight all over again. A while ago, the world was burning. Now, the Earth is healing.

It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I last met my boyfriend. The romantic in me is itching to break this into days, hours minutes and seconds but it’s way too much math for my brain to comprehend :D. Books and movies have covered all possible conflicts that plague the lovers but haven’t really covered how does the love battle a plague. The endless calls and extensive use of the video calls hardly make up for the proximity. Pillows make makeshift cuddling dummies as the conversations get more and more diverse.
