This is a frightening phase for me, not knowing what the future holds. My line of work is one where social distancing of any sort will be compromised, as we are always in close proximity with our clients. Also, it is not a profession where working from home is an option. We had taken bookings before the pandemic [monsoon brides, and going into autumn and winter brides] and though everyone is in touch via e-mail, no one has finalised any occasion. In the near future, one can work on a bride with masks on and attention paid to sanitation, but will it be safe for the artist herself?”
