Lockdown Liaisons is a collection of short stories, from the varying perspectives of both men and women – young and old, brave and cowardly, cheerful and weighed down – each story a unique offering from a writer who understands how very fragile human relationships can be as they break, suffer and are redefined under trying circumstances.Explore, read and understand the subterranean world of shifting emotions during Covid-19, through stories that will speak to you. In these pages there is an elderly woman who lives alone in a building who can’t bear her nosey neighbours, a migrant worker who has to make a tough choice as he gets ready to walk hundreds of uncertain kilometres homewards, the Bollywood star who is stuck in his lavish weekend home and raves and rants to no avail, a couple whose wedding plans unravel due to the uncertainties of the times, and a special little boy and how he negotiates his intimate relationship with Ganpati during lockdown. And many more. But what binds these stories together is love. These are stories that show how Covid-19 is affecting the hearts of hundreds of people as they struggle to make sense of altered circumstances, of the ‘new normal’ that will emerge in a post-Covid world.
