Janta CurfewIndia
India is reeling under coronavirus pandemic; the first case was reported in the country on 30 January 2020. The central government website claims a death toll of eight persons from different states and 467 affected by coronavirus COVID-19. The central and state governments in India are taking serious note and as part of their strategy to break the coronavirus chain, a one day 'Janta curfew' was implemented by the Prime Minister of India, Sri Narendra Modi, urging fellow Indian citizens to stay indoors between 7am to 9pm on 22nd March 2020. I spent a day in and around Kolkata to capture its spontaneous effect.
