About the theme

Locked in our own houses, we had the liberty to spend the most amount of time with ourselves. During these turbulent times, many of us had to confront our deep-rooted emotions that wouldn’t have easily surfaced. Some found positivity during these times of profound soul searching and some went into the depths of distress with confrontation at several levels of survival

Lockdown not only stopped our physical movement, but also the man-made vicious circle we were running into. It brought out thoughts and emotions that are un-parallel to another time experienced in the history of mankind. Most of us froze, some worked hard to figure it out, others let go and some couldn’t take it

But, a few gems amidst us had the vision and the insight to document these moments, in fiction and non-fiction. They expressed how they felt, they dared to present the unbiased perspective. To those few rare individuals, we call out today

Come, join us in showcasing your magnificent captures of lockdown that definitely will leave a lasting impression in the minds of most, for years to come

A story is best when it is told. A story breathes when it is heard
