Are communication lines between friends more open or closed than earlier?When the lockdown began on the night of 24th March, initially, I'm sure, there would have been a flurry of messages and calls from friends about the situation, discussions centering on whether or not provisions were obtained. Then slowly the conversations moved to talk about the problems of sharing workspace and computers due to everyone working from home, about the lack of a maid, the difficulties in getting things repaired, the trials and tribulations of cooking and cleaning, sharing photos of innovative new dishes, and so on.
Over time, as the months went by, did you experience a slowdown in the pace of communication from friends? Did they get so busy with their own work and problems that they really had no time to lend an ear to yours? Did they get caught up with their chores and online meetings that even weekly WA chats vanished? Or did you find that not only did friends share their jokes and woes equally but also willingly spared time for you far more than earlier, realizing how important it was to keep up spirits all round?
Were the initial lockdown days and even now literally a lockdown in the friendship's communication lines?
