Puniya, Pramila aur Rachna Ki Lockdown Kahani
In this episode, we bring you more stories of every woman coping with the devastating impact of Covid-19 from Bundelkhand and beyond. We tell the story of Puniya, a 70-year-old Dalit street vendor struggling to keep her business going in Chitrakoot;
The second story is of Pramila, once a working woman but now stuck at home, whose dreams of going back to work have been interrupted by the pandemic;
The third story is of Rachna, a domestic worker and a single mother in Delhi, who worries about losing her livelihood and not having a support system to see her through this crisis.
We also pay a tribute to our very dear comrade, fellow traveller, and fierce feminist ally Rizwana Tabassum, who was taken from us this May and who made this episode and this podcast series possible. Rest in Power, Riz.
