Corona (Kovid-19) became a new tragedy for the whole world. Be it America or Spain, Italy, China, France, England or our country India, the so-called ‘grandfather’ of the countries of the world; This virus was heavy on everyone. Countless people of the world had to deal with things like lockdown for the first time. This was a big challenge for a huge country like India. The Corona tragedy broke the back of employment and economy. But Corona taught and showed us a lot. The rivers were blooming, the trees were swaying. At the same time, compositions were also being done in the literary world. There have been frequent literary posts from different corners of the country on social sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. The works of Rajeev Kumar Jha (Like the younger brother) are also the works acquired during the Corona period. Many poems in his poetry collection ‘Band Panne’ are a satire on society; So the collection of ‘Kya Likhoon Main’ is better than if I called the corona diary. The issue he has caught does not leave him unfinished. In the story collection ‘Zero Number’, he has shown the way to the youth keeping the important aspect of the society open. I think the literary world needs to see what Rajeev has written from a corner of the closed room during the lockdown.
