‘What do smitten lovers, over-worked doctors, stubborn septuagenarians and gallant soldiers have in common? Probably not much. Except that shit can waltz into their lives any minute.’
This is how the blurb of my new book ‘Love, Loss, Lockdown’ starts. It’s a collection of ten short stories set in India, each offering a different slice of life. The only thread binding these tales is that, all of them unfold during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I started writing the book this March, just a little before the nationwide lockdown was announced in my country. Managed to finish it in three months thanks to Kartik Sudershan’s constant feedback. And Ashley Suvarna who helped edit it. Since I also happen to be an amateur artist, I illustrated the cover too.
