“Although the Pandemic is there for one and a half years, it was not as fearful and terrible as in the second wave, especially in India. The April and May Month of 2021 was tough traumatic and horrible. It got chills to our spines when we saw mass deaths and graves in different cities of India. Cremation grounds were with piles of Burning bodies in almost all Cities, innumerable people dying with entire families wiped out in large. The Government's official record reports around seven lakh deaths. It was nowhere to match the actual as per sources. It unofficial reported twenty-five lakh deaths. The cremations grounds were overflowing. Graveyards had no space, floating unclaimed bodies in the river, the river beds were full of dead bodies, and some cities built massive Crematoriums to deal with the number of deaths. The smell of death was all around. Social media was flooded with the news of condolences messages and news of death constantly. We lost many close friends and family members. This video is about the silent anguish, agony, and misery that we experienced and encountered during the period, and the performance is about unregistered deaths and unclaimed bodies. The deep thought towards the lost soul was a silent protest to make every death count.”
