    • Society & Culture

“I missed seeing human beings during this time…I’m a people person and I didn’t see anyone on the road or the street outside our house, and I wanted to see people so badly.”

Shagufta is an educator and also director of an intercultural learning project called Ganga Jamuni. She lives in Delhi, India, with her husband and four year old daughter. She recorded her postcard on 23 June.

Shagufta set up Ganga Jamuni to connect young people with their vibrant and diverse cultural heritage; a response to the current populist political climate in India. You can access information about the initiative on Facebook and Instagram.

In this postcard, Shagufta talks about shifting learning online during lockdown, a period that brought family closeness but also financial stresses and emotional hardship.
