Shot on assignment @natgeo / A blind man waits his turn outside a bank. Bank queues became a norm in rural India amidst the lockdown. With no source of income, even the 500inr transferred by government came as a relief to most in rural India.

On assignment @natgeo / Fumigation clouds filled a street in Lucknow - bearing a rather deserted look - amidst the sealing of the locality. When covid positive cases were detected in the locality, the area was sealed and people refrained from stepping outside.

Shot on assignment for @natgeo / After cycling for about 600kms over 5 days - and sometimes going without sleep for more than 24 hours at a stretch - two migrants in deep slumber dream of going home. They slept like logs, and on closer look, with eyes half open. 
I found them sleeping under the trees along a highway near Lucknow, where they arrived from Jaipur. Home is Bihar.
