As the nationwide lockdown has been imposed and extended, one of the most affected family members is a housewife, as there is no rest for her. We have seen our mothers working round the clock as every other moment there is a different demand. In fact, the lockdown has increased their work as now there is no house help to do jhaadu, pooncha, bartan, or kapde for them. They are single-handedly managing the entire house. Not just this, they have to also turn master chef as their family members often come up with strange cravings.
