The Lockdown Stories

Greetings to all!


While the whole world has been going through a crisis that probably strikes every 100 years, we all felt helpless, sad, dejected and emotional. Cities, countries and continents came to a standstill with lockdowns and curfews. Yet, some of us found solace in cooking, others found comfort in reading and writing. Some went back to painting and gardening. 

We can say that most of us went back to our old habits and hobbies which we had left behind in the race of living.


Keeping in mind, the creativity and feelings in everyone’s hearts, Paperbacks Publishing House came up with the idea of a book based on the stories and expressions which people would like to share keeping the lockdown in mind. And that led to ‘The Lockdown Stories’.

We are extremely happy to announce that the first book by our Publishing House, will be a collection of articles from touching stories to eulogies. These write ups have come from different corners of the country and include authors of different age groups. 


The collection has turned out to be quite a fascinating assortment of thoughts, feelings and ideas. We are hopeful that this one will cater to the needs of every reader and will leave a lasting impression by the time you turn over the last page. 


We are extremely grateful to the writers for sending in such amazing entries that we had a tough time selecting the best of them. We are excited to bring it out for you and hope you’ll be equally excited to lay your hands on it!


Very soon, we will be announcing the release date. Till then, stay home.Stay Safe.
