The fourth phase of lockdown allows for a few relaxations as per the guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs and does allow inter-state travel of passenger vehicles under certain conditions, after acquiring permissions. Swara Bhasker, who had been living in Mumbai amid lockdown, travelled all the way to Delhi by road with her five pets to be with her mother after she suffered a fracture. Swara took necessary permission from authorities and made the journey over two days.
Speaking with The Times Of India, Swara said that last week her mom Ira Bhasker, who lives in Delhi, fell and fractured her shoulder and that she had been worried for her mom. “It is a fracture of the collarbone, so her whole torso is in a brace and she has to keep her right hand and right side of the torso immobilised. Luckily, my sister-in-law was in Delhi and was able to move in and help my mom. But I had been feeling both restless and guilty for not being in Delhi, so when movement was allowed, I got the necessary permissions and decided to go from Mumbai to Delhi by road,” she said.
She further said that she has gone through necessary self-isolation and home-quarantine protocols. She traveled with her five pets and her cook first reached Udaipur after a 14-hour-drive from Mumbai, stayed overnight in Udaipur, and then drove 10 hours more to reach Delhi.
Swara Bhasker shared that she kept a trip a secret from her parents and they were surprised after she showed up. ALSO READ: Swara Bhasker Schools A Man For Using ‘Tumse’ Instead Of ‘Aapse’; Says, ‘Tameez Se Baat Karo, Hum Dost Nahi’
