Darjeeling Lockdown: A Photo Journal

The last time Darjeeling appeared this deserted was during 2017 agitation. This time it's a global pandemic that took the life away from one of the liveliest hill stations of India. Even me with all my 'I hate stupid tourists' cribbing felt sorry for my second home. Apart from romantic musings, I cannot begin to imagine the plight of the small business owners that totally depend on tourism. If the world is really heading for another depression (and as per the experts it's going to be worse than the 1930 one) then I definitely experienced an initial taste of it yesterday. May the gods save us.





Glenary's. This one really made me cry.
