Born and bought up in Raipur, Dhairya Mehta is a last-year student in IIIT Bhubaneswar. Dhairya is a co-founder of Lockdown Story. It was founded by him and 2 of his friends, on 21st May 2020.

They started with the motto, “The Lockdown Story exists because, in the time of the pandemic, every story deserves an applaud”.

Lockdown Story tackles the lockdown blues, by narrating some of the inspiring stories ever created. It intends to move to the phase of life with the memories worth remembering.

He says that, in this pandemic, people were depressed or tense, because this situation is new to every person. No one impacted indifferently.

They studied the experiences of different people and stories. People can connect and know each other on social platforms. Their initial idea was to narrate the stories on Facebook, Instagram, and their website.

But then, they started taking feedback from the members and storytellers. The feedbacks shape 80% of what Lockdown Story is now.
