Prabash Tiwari is an international student studying in Chicago. With college campuses closed and classes moved online, he’s trying to get home to his family in India. Since Tiwari is originally a citizen of the U.K., he’s not allowed to fly into India. He hopes the government reevaluates its border laws. Until then, he’s forced to wait.
