After the U.S., India has the highest number of coronavirus cases in the world. In this episode of “Call Your Elders” New York City-based journalist and former Feet in 2 Worlds fellow Ramaa Reddy calls her 93-year-old aunt Indira in Bangalore to see how she’s doing.

Call Your Elders features conversations with immigrant elders — grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles — to hear how they are coping during the coronavirus pandemic.  What have they learned over the years that can help the rest of us survive today’s challenges?
