Bicycle (Anju)

My bicycle came to my rescue at a very crucial time in my life .This was when the city had gone under curfew back in 2020 to curb the rising number of Covid cases, when the government was trying to contain the virus. My cycle was also responsible for enabling what I call one of the most profound experiences in my life. That particular ride on that particular day introduced me to a very different version of myself, someone I had never met before. Giving vent to those aspects of my personality made me a lot less fearful as a person. It made me take up a lot more space as a person. In retrospect I feel like I was put through a wringer only so I could learn some important life lessons.
