Harsha is interrested in looking at what how what we know as 'feminine' in the West takes a different epistemological form in Hindu culture. There is a skewed perception of femininity in India, by looking into her history and traditions we uncover new truths.

He'll be interviewing Neerlima ji on how femininity has changed over the past 50 years, and how perceptions of womanhood have manifested across different parts of India.
