As a feminist, I believe it is critical for intersectionality to be embraced. My articles on gender & cinema, Hindi & English poetry and short stories, all talk of varied facets of feminism, the inherent need for this conversation and clear critical action. My stories on community radio exemplify the criticality of feminism, in a relatable human way, the allows for more open conversation in changing dominant thought processes.
The journey towards articulating my ideology across ways of expression began as a child in Lucknow, as I grew up in an egalitarian household. Miranda House shaped these beliefs further, and the unequal realities of our everyday lives, made the resolve stronger, over 10 years of work, and 15 years of theatre.
