Since the lockdown started last year, staying in a joint family was all fun and games in the initial days of it. As the lockdown kept on extending, spending 24 hours with all the family members became somehow difficult not only for me, but also for my family members. Earlier prior the pandemic, even when staying in a joint family didn’t seem that difficult because most of the time we used to keep on doing our things school, college, office and it used to be peaceful at home during the day time. On holiday also, coming all of us together didn’t bother us much. Pandemic has really shown us that even if it’s our family, it isn’t easy for us to stay together under the same roof for 24 hours straight. During the lockdown period we could help ourselves either. So we managed to somehow be at peace with it.
