The map of our ‘amusement park’ represents the various aspects of ‘Play’ covered in our research. We ‘enter’ from the main gate on the left and make our way to the design interventions at the far end on the right. Along the path, we come across various rides and play areas.

We start with understanding the relevance of Play in our lives, how Play has shaped our lifestyle and cultural practices in our shared journey through the ages. Parallelly, we learn about the mental health crisis and its relationship with the family and household that has emerged during this pandemic. We go through the labyrinth of various issues that people are currently facing and discover the most common reason lying at the centre of a labyrinth. We take this further by understanding the archetypal Indian family and its internal dynamics.

We end at the various design interventions we have come up with where we use Play as a plug-in to foster improved social connections.
