Rana Ayyub, a journalist based in Mumbai and a Washington Post global opinions writer, describes the perilous state of the pandemic in India and the limitations on journalists who are covering the crisis. "The carnage continues unabated," she says. But "how do you also report at a time when your own family members are losing their lives?" Ayyyb also discusses the media's relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She says "journalism is happening in India, but the gatekeepers are not allowing the truth to kind of get on the front pages." She asserts that "everything has been taken over by the Modi government. It's a one-man show."
