In this very honest and no holds barred episode, Yashica talks about her growing up years in Rajasthan and explains why beyond the facade of tourism, Rajasthan remains one of the hellhole for Dalits and Women.

We discussed why oppression doesn’t disappear due to material gains and how the caste (and not class) remain the central figure in Indian society.

We discussed the abstract and psychological aspect of ‘homelessness’ for Dalits. Yashica also reveals if moving to America has been a liberating feeling.

There are so many more in this conversation which touches upon the idea of the caste, gender, Indian diaspora, Trauma and many social realities of the country.
