Twitter space: Covid anxiety and grief. Ad hoc compassion and support group

So we had this Twitter space as a kind of ad hoc support group for people going through anxiety and grief in the pandemic.

Some things I sensed from the overall conversation:

The government features prominently in personal feelings about the pandemic.

There is a sense of betrayal, of anger, disappointment, contempt at the behaviour of the government and of Modi in particular in the face of what is an insane calamity.

It was impossible for any of us to talk about our feelings without mention of govt.


Even though I've been having conversations with people for the past year, doing it as a Twitter space was a new experience and comes with its own challenges and a learning curve.

I am hoping to offer brief time daily or every alternate day for such conversations.
