Abstract

Domestic Violence irrespective of gender is not a new story. Domestic violence especially
against women has been taken up for study for a very long time by writers. The new story is the
alarming increase in the number of domestic violence cases during this lockdown period.
COVID 19, the pandemic has changed everybody’s life and people are today running towards a
‘New normal’. The phrase ‘New Normal’ brings in lots of unanswered questions into people’s
mind. The most threatening question of all with respect to domestic violence is, “Is the increase
in domestic violence during this lockdown period is also counted as the ‘New Normal’?” This
paper attempts to study the psychosocial aspect of domestic violence especially during this
lockdown period with relevant examples from literature.
