The Desi Nari Edition!

This week's edition is dedicated to all the incredible women in our lives.
Best podcast by Indian Women

Good Morning, Folks!

This last week seems to have been a huge boost for female morale. Starting off with the big news about “period leave” announced by Zomato. Now, I know this is a much-debated issue, but let’s credit it for opening a nationwide dialogue about a taboo issue.

One a more curious note – Have you heard about the new female figure traffic lights on the streets of Mumbai?! Here check it out…

A pedestrian crossing light with one of the new female silhouettes in the Dadar neighborhood of Mumbai.

This is the state’s Tourism and Environment Minister – Aditya Thackeray’s take on encouraging women equality! Honestly, I am not particularly sure how this helps the cause but heck let’s just go with the spirit of act right?

But the best thing about last week has been these two epic movies that celebrate two absolutely incredible Indian sheroes! Shakuntala Devi on Prime Video & Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl on Netflix.

If you haven’t watched these yet, then kick back this weekend & enjoy some good cinema in the comfort of your home.

So to keep up with all this girl power, we thought of shining a light on 5 amazing podcasts hosted by our desi kudis. So here we go:
