    Ep. 09: I Do. Or Do I?

    Ep. 09: I Do. Or Do I?

    On this episode, our hosts Jaanam, Abbas and Madhuri are in conversation with a co-founder and co-host of Books On Toast - Anuya Jakatdar about the greenest flag called 'marriage'. They look deep into the patriarchal institution of marriage, its conventional images and stereotypical beliefs. From body image to Mills and Boons romance, beauty saving the beast to kanya-daan, this episode is all about breaking the stereotypes. With new observations and what sounds like 'wisdom', the 'I do' turns into 'Do I give into all this? If not, what are the other beliefs I want to reinforce?"
