Times are really tough. The pandemic has hit us all hard and as we were slowly recovering from the fall, the number of covid cases in India has started rising again.

Living in a hostel or Pg doesn’t really enable you to become part of a community. The hostels/pg’s in India are basically spaces where the owner rents vacant spaces out for accommodation and as an income for him/her.

There was once an idea of what a Hostel was. An old building, many rooms, multiple sharing rooms, one or two minimal bathrooms, maybe wifi, no food and ever looming uncertainty of no water during summers. The rent was low, hygiene was never a priority, the fear of losing one’s possessions is always there.
