Manasi Prabhakar Joshi
This was not an ordinary feat. Her achievement paved the way for Indian females to see themselves beyond the household. It freed them from the shackles of restrictions and compulsions. It proved that females can have an identity other than that of a mother, wife and daughter. That she can be her own being. An individual.
It's been 150 years since then. Have things really changed? Are the Indian women free? Free from the drudgery of the household chores? Is she free to think of her own desires, wishes and needs? Is she free from her constant need for validation and approval from the men in her life? Yes, there has been some progress in terms of education, careers, lifestyle choices. But can we say the same about our attitude and our mindset?
The play "Dr. Anandibai - Like, Comment, Share" tries to answer these questions.
