My response to Nandala's letter depicts the current scenario of the Taj Mahal. It shows the scaffolding built around the Taj for the sake of conservation, a crucial step taken by the authorities to preserve one of the greatest wonders of the world. In reply to his note in Bengali, I have a few words written in Kannada that translates to "present update 2020". I chose this letter for my response just to reflect on how times have changed, resulting in some unforeseen situations. Especially during this time of pandemic, it gives me an opportunity to just look back in reminiscence and rejoice times before its dominance. I write this letter to him posing as a messenger giving insights about the present circumstances, and in turn hoping for a better tomorrow.
