Vidushi Nagpal, a New Delhi schoolteacher, loved sharing photos of her daughters -- aged 17 and 20 -- on social media. On Twitter, she would post pictures of them cooking and baking. On Instagram, the girls sang, danced and played musical instruments. Then there were blogs about how the duo was helping her manage the house during the pandemic.
