Lost both my lifelines to covid. Aai aur Baba ke bina kuch bhi pehle jaisa nahi rahega. Ek mahine mein sab bikhar chuka hai. Ghar, sapne, sab kuch. (Without aai and baba nothing will ever be the same. In just one month, everything has fallen apart. Home, dreams, everything)”
He further wrote, “Meri aai mere pass nahi hai, baba mere saath nahi hain. Ab shuru se jeena seekhna padega. Mann nahi kar raha (My aai is not near me, my baba is not with me. Now I’ll have to learn to live from the beginning but don’t want that).
“Was I a good son? Did I do enough to save them? I’ll have to live with these questions forever. Can’t wait to see them again. I wish the day comes soon,” Bhuvan concluded.
