What the New Indian Woman podcast is about

As you may already be aware, this podcast has 2 focus areas. One, We examine the challenges faced by today's Indian woman and proposes ACTIONABLE strategies in the Indian context, on a wide variety of topics - right from identifying their passion to better productivity and parenting.  Second,  We meet women who chose to aspire or have a dream beyond their defined roles  and facilitates sharing of what worked and what didn’t, for them. Today's episode falls in the second category.


And in the process, my aim is to help  you, The New Indian woman, to realize your potential, chase your dreams and aspirations, utilize the wonderful opportunities available in today's world.


What's in this episode:


Bindhumalini talks about what it means for her and her husband to be in the musical field and the advantages and the constant learnings that it entails. Then we move on to discussing the daily life and if music is an intrinsic part of her day.


We discuss the relevance of spontaneity vs planning, where what is required. Is planning a challenge for someone in creative space. All of you who give your reasons for the chaos out there, you need to listen to this part of the episode definitely. Bindhu talks about the need to harness spontaneity and she talks about how responsibility plays a role in this. Then we explore about music and art forms, whether they exist in a different realm, away from the real world.


Bindhu talks about challenges that people in music and performing arts face and what we, as listeners, should or should not do. We discuss the importance of reflection and how it can influence our daily life. Gender and the culture of women having to sacrifice, how our relevance keeps changing and the need to adapt to it and what freedom means - these are interesting topics where we get to hear Bindhu's thoughts.


And towards the end, Bindhu, true to her character, ignores the minimal audio setup for this podcast and sets out to sing and there too she makes a conscious choice of what to sing.


And with this, we end the 2 Part series on Bindhumalini! Hope you enjoyed this episode.
