COVID-19, quarantine and coping: A mental health perspective

By Srabasti Majumdar

Srabasti Majumdar on connecting, caring, creating and coping with the multiple crises engulfing us
This photograph shows a medium long shot of leaves of a coconut tree just outside the author’s window. The photograph has been taken from inside the house. The strands of the leaves can be seen against a grey sky and they too appear more grey than green. The window has a transparent glass pane on which one can see the reflection of a orangish yellow spherical lamp hanging from the ceiling. But the reflection almost seems to peer through the leaves, and some people for a moment may confuse the reflection to be a setting sun. To the left edge of the photograph, one can see a somewhat diffused image of the strings of a hanging planter. Photo credit: Nilanjan Majumdar
