The privilege of being woken up by a storm and not having to fear for one's survival is lost on many. As we enjoy the weather today I hope you are safe out there, as I hope you are kinder to those around you, because many aren't. #DelhiRainspic.twitter.com/NQMDgWDseI- Divisha Srivastava (@dvshasri) May 23, 2022
