His story about the picture- Sandeep works in Goonj’s Office and was visiting Puri, Odisha, to cover the aftermath of Fani Cyclone in April 2019. He says about the picture “I could feel how much people must have suffered and lost after the cyclone. It was raining and the roofs were missing, No place to be in, no food to eat and they were managing with whatever little they were left with. I saw this lady peeping from the door which had no door actually, wondering what we were here for. I noticed how she was forced to hang her clothes on a rope, hoping life would get better sometime in future. “
