It was a lonely last journey for Azhar, a seven-month-old COVID-19 patient who was buried at the Jadid Qabristan Ahle Islam in Delhi’s ITO area Saturday by the staff of the cemetery. His parents, ThePrint learnt, had left Delhi for their home in Madhya Pradesh Friday, after stealing one last glance at their infant son. Out of money, they were struggling to eat and staying in Delhi was proving difficult too.

I am Manisha Mondal, working as the Senior Multimedia Journalist with an Indian organisation named ThePrint. I never knew that I would become a professional photographer. I was always enthusiastic about journalism, stories interested me a lot, but with visuals it becomes extraordinary. I believe one frame is enough to deliver the entire story.
