I am caged in my own mind where time stands still. Nelson Mandela in his ‘Long walk to freedom’ quoted that, “there is no beginning and end of life at the prison.” The captives can only escape from prison through their imagination. The kingdom of imagination is independent yet so meaninglessly absurd. However ridiculous and intangible it is, the world of imagination is the only privilege a captive got.
Quarantine made me live inside my head a lot. I felt unravelling slowly with every piece of news, with every sound of an ambulance siren. With every random noise, I felt panic, like I was slowly losing reality and escaping into a surreal place in my head. My mind swayed back and forth from realism to surrealism trying to find an escape.
