The fourth and final phase of a nationwide lockdown for India ended on 31st May, 2020. In this final leg, I went on with the #WritingInLockdown challenge and did #CollaborativeWriting along with some writers, artists and a few entrepreneurs.
This one is a mix of quotes, life-lessons and poems. Have a look at them all below:
1. Self-Discovery in Lockdown
The first one on our #WritingInLockdown challenge 4.0 in collaboration with Vidhi Parekh, Founder of Kraftbuzz and and Co-founder of Ateliers Studio.
Her story helps us look at the positive side of this lockdown. She has been engaging in long lost hobbies and activities she would never have got to do otherwise, like recreating her mom’s looks, painting, trying out new recipes and even reading. She says it’s the best time for her as she’s getting to discover or rather rediscover herself.
2. Keeping Family and Loved Ones Close
In our second collaborative writing post for the #WritingInLockdown challenge 4.0 in Dr. Ritulika, Founder of Sandali Creations, shares how she realized the importance of family. This lockdown has helped her understand how staying close with those who matter the most, is the most important.
3. Lockdown epiphanies
Today’s #WritingInLockdown challenge 4.0 in collaboration with Roopali Jain, a writer and CA aspirant Roopali Jain
This lockdown has been quite an insightful one for her. She shares her epiphanies and they’re 💯 true and relatable for us.
