After 16 days of COVID i mixed my father’s ashes into a rose plant and two evergreen trees, sought his blessings, and return my broken heart to the reporting road for @themojostory starting travels through rural India. This will be a personal pilgrimage. Wish us luck and love https://t.co/B3VaWqow5D

Kiran's husband has cancer, she lost both sons to COVID, but her elder son was told he has typhoid, by the time he ran around for a hospital for COVID it was too late. His death will not be counted. From MP, we investigate COVID undercounting. Full report- https://t.co/t8doFPe07h https://t.co/r8LUk3dEO8

@BDUTT Barkha you are just superb in whatever you report. You seem so tough that today when your vulnerability is confessed, I feel concerned. Hope you never say die spirit shall prevail.

How two songs, one by Lata Mangeshkar, the other by Noor Jehan help Mashkqoor Khan cope with losing his wife Fatima, and two children to COVID. "Main Toot Gaya' he says breaking most of us to watch him. My ground report from Raisen in Madhya Pradesh here: https://t.co/FPU276cQxI https://t.co/4YITZRpiX8

I can no longer listen to music because every single tune reminds me of my father. From Melody to Melancholy, Grief expresses itself in the strangest way as what took him away from us , COVID, is now literally my whole life . #FathersDay https://t.co/lvx8kby16K

So true. I mean it helps to be Kate but what a bloody relief to not be confronted with pouting performers with heels that have more inches than their waist . Also Rujuta and you know I can’t resist this, this means you need to lift the ban on coffee, wine and aloo ❤️❤️ https://t.co/rgqQuRm7sx

The reason why Mare of Easttown works is because the lead is a middle aged woman who isn’t waiting to lose weight before she can chase a criminal, go on a date or plot to keep the grandson to herself. #mareofeasttown

Allahabad HC quote on how burying bodies in river banks is old tradition does nothing to contradict our ground reportage on mass graves of abandoned bodies during peak of COVID. Local testimonies at 7 points along Ganga told us they'd never seen anything of this scale before https://t.co/lVr0sn5wcQ
