Recently, Shruti shared a video in which she tried to express her overwhelming emotions during the Covid-19 crisis. She wrote, "I’ve had a tough time staying super optimistic or positive or upbeat during these times - which also means I haven’t been able to think clearly creatively and it makes me super sad that my emotions are so intertwined that I’m not able to unravel or unknot them into a song or idea - I just felt like venting today I felt like having a bit of a cry at my piano and sharing that moment of chaos with you - “ we are in this together “ just doesn’t cut it anymore - the loss of loved ones the sheer breaking of the human spirit in front of our eyes - I put these pitched screams out as a prayer to the universe - may something ELSE MORE POWERFUL spread amongst us -HOPE REFORMATION GROWTH TRUTH AND COMPASSION and finally CHANGE. ?? I’m sending you love as always but today it’s just garnished with a whole lot of other stuff ?? I’m angry and hurt and I can’t wait to turn that into action in my own small way (sic)."
