“Keo Bajbena! (No one will survive!)” Was the common chant among the people as I entered a vaccination center to gather info about my father’s second dose of vaccinations which is getting delayed due to the unavailability of vaccines. And the optimal time interval between the required two shots is going to get over soon.

Anyways, so as they chanted, “Keo Bajbena!”, some spat their morning cough openly and some hanged their masks in one ear and took a drag of their ‘bidis’. And they kept sharing their anxieties — “No one will survive!”

And after a while, when an Official arrived, people mob them. I helplessly stood at a corner and took this picture instead, thinking posting it on Instagram would kill some of my time and distract me from overthinking about this carnage.
