Topic: Personal note

I found a letter in his book

It's the Corona epidemic time. The Indian government has strictly asked people to self-isolate themselves (something known as 'quarantine' in a more exotic term). Basically, it's next to impossible to go on the roads. Meet a friend. Or see any relatives. Today, I got his books. From his relative – Ranjan Kaka's – home. These are homes and hearts I've got an unsolicited full access to (without any questioning). Access I didn't ask for. An access I always longed for but one (specifically this one) that didn't belong to me.
