The studies on experiences faced by people during the spread of Coronavirus pandemic and its spread are unique and unprecedented. To help the individuals experiencing lockdown in India, it is essential to elicit an in-depth understanding of the psychological and social problems experienced by the people in India. We identified the factors specifically important to assert healthy psycho-social functioning and provided a secured platform to share all concerns regarding the factors under study.
