In this 15-min podcast, 'Modern Family', Amrita Rajan and feminist blogger Orange Jammies discuss the modern Indian marriage and how its changing
In our new series of podcasts, ‘Modern Family’, we explore the state of the modern Indian marriage with people from various walks of life.
First up on this 15-minute episode is Orange Jammies, a feminist blogger and (almost) newlywed, talking about her own marriage and how she has seen gender roles changing in our daily lives.
In this podcast we discuss:
– Housework – who does it and why?
– Nature vs. Nurture – what drives men and women toward an equal partnership?
– Role Models – the importance of role models from the opposite gender.
– Generation – the meaning of marriage for the younger set.
(The podcast begins with a discussion of a recent ad for a breakfast product – if you haven’t seen the ad in question, check it out here).

Aha! So you are past 45 years of age. Ahem….. And in an introspective world. Did you live right all way so far? Is this the life you wanted?
Are you successful? Has life treated you well? Was it worth so far? Is life slipping by? And biggest of all… Do I really look like over 45 years?
If you have these questions surfacing , simply wedge them out. Whether one wants to or not, we all reach time-bound levels in the game of life. But once you reach the level past 45, the game changes.
Relatives kissing children's penises made me wonder how this is leaving boys vulnerable to potential abuse under the garb of affection.
As we witness in all Indian family gatherings – whether a wedding, a birthday, or a summer vacation – nostalgia soaks us all.
However, one such gathering exposed me to a horrific practice that, though common in many houses worldwide, is very problematic.
It all started with my horror at hearing one of the supposedly funny anecdotes about my cousin’s birth.
