Yes, this is our first pandemic. But within the dark shadows of this lockdown, lies the real pandemic and that’s hate and abuse. How these infections spread across societies. It’s a human trait gone wrong. Terribly. So many unheard voices and so many stories of agony at home. Today I take up their names because they suffer. I want to tell them I will try and understand that suffering. I will try and spread some love. I hope some of it goes their way and doesn’t just remain a fad on Instagram. #LockDownMeinLockUp”
