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).

While marriage brings with it its own set of responsibilities for both partners, it is often the woman who needs to so all the adjustments.
For a 25-year-old women — who tied the knot in March-2014 — the love come arranged marriage brought with it a new city, and also the “responsibility of managing household chores“.
Prior to her marriage, she learned to cook after marriage as her husband “doesn’t cook”.
“I struggled and my husband used to tell me that it would turn out better the next time. Now, I am much a better cook,” said the mother to a three-and-a-half-month-old, who chose to work from home after marriage.
Jaane Jaan is a great standalone flick, but a lot of it could have been handled better, and from the POV of the main character.
Jaane Jaan is a thriller streaming on Netflix and is adapted from Keigo Higashino’s book, ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’. I found the film to be riveting, with a nail-biting build-up. However, in my personal opinion, the climax and the treatment of the female lead was a letdown.
Disclaimer: I haven’t read the book yet, and I am not sure how true the adaptation has stayed to the source material.
(SPOILERS AHEAD. Please read after you watch the movie if you are planning to)
