 When India announced a nationwide lockdown on March 24, 2020, millions of migrant workers suddenly found themselves without a job or any means of supporting their lives in foreign cities - hundreds of miles away from home. Millions walked home, with their families and belongings. This photo, of a young child sleeping on a suitcase while his mother drags it along, went viral. The image, heartbreaking as it was painted a picture of the harsh reality of one of the biggest mass migrations in history. (Image: Twitter)

 Where there's a will, there's a way. When the pandemic started, the whole world shifted to a work-from-home mode. But surely, Communions and Mass cannot be conducted remotely? Turns out, it can. Religion cannot take a backseat because of a virus, and that's just what this Spanish pastor did - in a photo that went viral on social media, Catholic priest Jesus Higueras from the Santa Maria de Cana parish was seen live-streaming mass in March this year.

 A sight that could never be imagined - In March this year, after Saudi Arabia officially ceased travel to the Islamic pilgrimage sites of Mecca and Medina amid a global pandemid, eerie videos of the empty Kaaba went viral on social media.

 Battle scars - The global pandemic exposed just how vulnerable and fragile the healthcare system is. With the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to hospitals being filled up at a rapid pace, healthcare workers became the 'Covid warriors' fighting in the frontlines with an invisible virus. A few weeks ago, a young doctor from UP shared a photo of an extremely wrinkled hand, after hours of working in PPE kits. The photo is proof of how our healthcare professionals have been putting their lives on the line during the pandemic. (Image: Twitter/Syed Faizan Ahmad)

 Lockdown, but not on music- When countries around the world went into lockdown during the pandemic, millions of people were locked in their homes with no means of interacting face-to-face with those around them. But music brought them together. Throughout the pandemic, there have been reports of people holding mini concerts in their balconies, of neighbours coming together for a little jam session (albeit, while in isolation in their own homes), playing music and making merry.
