Lockdown Report


  • It is tough to stay all day in a small crammed house with just a single room. It bothers me to do my office work here as I make quite a few mistakes and get scolded.
  • Owing to lockdown, costs of things have gone up. This troubles me.
  • With companies closing down, my father has lost his job. It is difficult to meet the expenses of the house. I am the only earning member and I get just Rs 12,000.
  • Both my parents are sick. A lot of money is spent in buying their medicines. Still there is no improvement in their health. Now, I can’t take them to a hospital for check-up.
  • Sitting at home all day, my back pains.


  • I have got adequate rest at home and spent a lot of time with my family.
  • I and my family feel very safe at home.
  • Till now, we are safe from COVID-19 pandemic.
