We couldn’t not address it. The elephant in the room, or rather, the virus in the air. Releasing more than two months since India went into lockdown to contain the novel Coronavirus, this episode of Women in Labour was recorded entirely remotely.

With special guests:
Pooja Dhingra, pastry chef, entrepreneur, and author.
Diya Kapoor, Yoga instructor, mother of two and now at-home school teacher
Sunetra Choudhury, Political Editor at Hindustan Times
