During the pandemic, we also experienced cyclones and locusts attacks. The Bible hints at locusts attacks being a sign that the world may soon come to an end. Whatsapp forwards with verses from the bible stating the same started circulating around. 

My grandmother is convinced that the end is near and keeps nudging us to pray so that our souls go to heaven. Since the start of the lockdown churches have started live streaming masses and prayer services on YouTube, a few families from the community have also arranged zoom meetings to pray together. 

The television and the altar are on two separate walls of the living room. During her daily prayers she would face the altar, during the initial lockdown days she tried adjusting her position so she could face both. Now she just prays to the screen.
