Have you ever wondered what our mothers, sisters, and aunts did to unwind? Did they ever get the time to relax? What does leisure look like for women? Why is care work done by women called leisure? In the sixth episode of Local Diaries, Meera Jatav casts a feminist eye on women’s right to leisure through the festivals, songs, and games of Bundelkhand. The episode also features an immersive interview on women’s Right to Leisure and Joy with Surabhi Yadav, the founder of social enterprise Sajhe Sapne and Project Basanti – a multimedia project on women’s leisure.
