Day 6 Field Notes

Day 6 Field notes from #21daylockdownindia in Devachi Uruli, Pune Rural. Almost all shops open including the only dhobi/laundry in the area who opens up when the cops are not around. Says his business is badly hit and was quite helpless, awaiting for normalcy to return.

In a comical turn of events, the Tapri which sells smokes is now shut and the Allahabad guy who runs it has turned to selling bananas.

India takes hardly anytime to normalise when the crisis, as everyday has echoes of the absurd which we all relate to. A Day in the life of India.
