Sneha has a keen interested in Hindu womanhood from a modern perspective, and the evolving role of women in society. For the festival, she interviewed Shripriyaji Chaitanya, Brahmacharini of Chinmaya Mission UK on "The Life of a Sanyasi". It was fascinating to hear her journey to becoming initiated and how her family has taken the decision and what we can do, even if we are taking a different path from hers.
