Nitin bootlegged cigarettes and alcohol in Andheri. His no. was shared among a wide network of people who were looking for cigarettes. People in need of cigarettes would approach others smoking to ask them where they got their cigarettes from. They would all share Nitin’s no. Nitin’s landmark for meeting people was in front of a covid facility as it was the most prominent building in an otherwise labyrinthian urban village setting that Nitin operated in.
Sanjana was a contemporary dancer. In the lockdown she started making ends meet by baking cakes and pastries and delivering them.
