Quarantine and self-isolation in the light of the deadly pandemic Covid-19 have brought the worst of our fears to life. It has cut us off from routine in ways that are immediately obvious and imminently catastrophic. People have lost their livelihoods, we have seen a collapse in social-support systems, there is a declared global medical emergency crisis and this has directly impact our physical, mental and emotional health.

Without underestimating the many ways in which the lockdown has made our life difficult, let us look at another angle to the whole story. Quarantine, for many of us has been and is turning into an interesting experience. Families reuniting after ages, people confined with frenemies, flat mates falling in love, and siblings wanting to kill each other!

Also, in the long work-from-home hours, we are involuntarily getting to know ourselves better. Quarantine is frustrating but its also influencing our interpersonal relationships and has set us on an unplanned journey of self-discovery.

From finishing that book you had left incomplete under the shelf, to dusting off the canvas, exploring the MasterChef in you, to spending some time gardening, we are getting time to do things that were probably important to us at some point but surely not on our bucket-list!

Keeping this in mind, we at Break a Leg! present Quissa Quarantine Ka– an attempt to compile and publish some of the most moving quarantine stories.
