S02 E07: Just Mind(set) It

We started at X but somehow ended up at 100. But that just goes to show that the philosophy behind our mindsets is hardly linear - and neither is adulthood. In this episode we took snippets from Aristotle, Plato, The Bible, Upanishads, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Amin and Rathore to dig into what guides and builds our own mentality. Somewhere along the line we discussed positivity, negativity, the odd misconception around virtues and stuff about trees.

Every romantic song is strongly felt and emotions overflow like never before. The day is consumed in their thoughts and often we find ourselves looking somewhere faraway grinning like an idiot. All of these are symptoms of having a crush in life and we cant deny that it is the best feeling ever Sometimes a crush might like us back and that can lead to a road less travelled but mostly that never happens, often the heart is left crushed but still, that phase becomes positively etched in memory.Rytasha Ayushi become teenagers for a while as they get nostalgic about their time in school and college, and the times someone made their hearts flutter and eventually crush it or not, thats something we find out in the episode.

S02 E16: Life in Rhyming Scheme Ft. Rabia Kapoor

Gone are the days of heavy words and melancholy filled Shakespeare poetry. Its the time of relatability and rebellion. Poetry in the present day and age, for us millennials, is a way of expression. A lot of us are independent, often lonely, facing an identity crisis, and are still getting used to life as an adult. Many times, the emotions faced are inexpressible in regular conversation but when weaved into poetry, it is our version of putting things out in the world in a way that our heart is on our sleeve and poured out, we are relatable and at the same time, it is not too much personal information going out.It was World Poetry Day on 21st March and to mark that, we invited fellow millennial and baby adult Rabia Kapoor- she is a spoken word poet, a writer, an editor of a magazine named Spacebar and freshly back in the city from London where she was studying.Ayushi, Rytasha Rabia chat about life in general, life in poetry, how does it feel to be back in the city and home after having stayed alone for a long time, and in this pandemic situation about social media, the general attitude of the people towards youngsters and much more.Tune in for some sisterhood and solidarity :We promise to incorporate your thoughts queries.

S02 E18: Fantasizing about life post Covid

The last year felt like those few minutes after a nap that was aimed to be quick but lasted fashionably longer than we thought- unproductive and clueless and panicky. And this year feels like we badly need a nap but are avoiding it, dreading those post-nap feelings. In both cases, we are miserable and helpless. Take a break from all of this, close your eyes and just imagine- life. post. Covid. Not like the second half of 2020 with half-assed freedom, but like, maybe 2019, but better.You have finally activated that travel Whatsapp group and are packing to go on a trip, your pretty dresses can finally see the light of the day when you wear them for that date youve been planning with the cute guy you met online or when its a Friday night out with friends at a cool resto-bar and you cant wait for the DJ to play Bollywood, you can take the fast train to town and stand by the window letting the breeze serenade you, you can move on from the elbow touching and just go and embrace a loved one, you go to office and for so many, see your colleagues outside of the rectangular screen for the first time awkwarrrrd, but nice- feels good?

India saw a huge rise in the sale of sex toys and intimate products like lubes and oils, in the lockdown. Clearly, people are exploring this side as well. And as a country of 1.2 Billion people, we should not shy away from talking about itTo add more to this conversation, We had Anushka Sahil Gupta- couple and founders of a bedroom essentials brand called MyMuse. They shared highlights from the research done for the company, the products they have curated, the importance of sexual wellness, how and why it can be a healing and good experience and doesnt deserve to be taboo, and some fun young chatter overall So singles and couples, do tune in for some positivity :You can check out MyMuse at https://mymuse.in/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mymuse.in/We promise to incorporate your thoughts queries.

S02 E20: Juggling 'Work' & 'Life'

Work and Life locked in the houseTo stay safe and operate remotelyLife fell down, losing its balanceAnd work went tumbling shortly. Major relate? Us tooTerms like Work-Life Balance are casually thrown around in the present times and yes, there are multiple studies that show how it has gone for a toss but is it so? In a time when work can be office work, household work, or pursuing a hobby while Life could mean sleeping, browsing, surfing, socialising, relationships, and what not- do these studies take the non-ideal millennial life into account or are still stuck in the 9-5 era? If it is the latter, isnt it a fallacy on our part to stress ourselves out with the thought of a sense of imbalance?If you thought this episode was about two young women complaining about how work is too much, zoom fatigue, additional chores, bad internet, etc. then yes you are right but only partially. Rytasha Ayushi also discuss how work-life balance is a very undefined term for what constitutes the present-day meaning of these terms and help us deconstruct the same idea that has been rammed into our heads for quite some time now. So whether you are working with excel sheets/ flour and baking powder/ wax and moulds/ case files and journals/ Stethoscopes and pills/ mics and guitars/ lights and cameras/ or even IMPORTED SNEAKERS You do You and define what your work and life mean to you and live both to the fullest and as much in equilibrium as possible in Your capacity.

S02 E22: MOM=WOW (Part 1) Ft. Neha Amin

Most of us are at an age when our moms had already given birth to us/our older sibling. They were married, had taken on the responsibilities of running a house, were managing ties with people from 2 families, and a lot of them were juggling a job as well. They had, maybe, lost touch with hobbies, friends, careers, lovers had kissed goodbye to a lot of dreams as well. But that did not deter them from giving their best to the responsibilities at hand. They brought us up with utmost love and care and gave fire to our aspirations, made sure we get the best of everything. Its because of their unconditional support, we have it a lot easy in life. Some of us live with them and its a bittersweet time, some of us live away and there is not one day that we dont miss them, some of us dont have good ties with them and are coping with it, learning to be strong and some of us look up at the sky each time something important happens and quietly send out a lot of love. With Mothers day around the corner, Ayushi invited Neha Amin, her mum, on the show and its a heartfelt conversation between a wise mum and her young daughter. So make a cup of chai/coffee/kadha for your mums, play this on the speaker and sit back and relax. We bet it will make your dayAnd if youre wondering where Rytasha is, she will be joined by her mum in the next episode, so more awesomeness coming upWe promise to incorporate your thoughts queries.

S02 E23: MOM=WOW (Part 2) ft. Purnima Rathod

Once a woman attains motherhood, she is revered by society. That becomes her principal role in life. But we rarely acknowledge the woman behind the layer. She could have been so many other things- a sister, a daughter, an artist, a friend, a buddy, a lover. But when she becomes a mom, there is no going back. At least not until the kids grow up, which is a long time. Sometime into the pod, Purnima aunty, Rytasha mom and our guest for the pod, talks about how both her daughters have now grown up, built their individual lives and this is her time for herself where she can be found reading, cooking, pursuing a hobby, making the time for all that she might have left behind the day she held her child in her arms. And we say, you go girl Along the way, they do talk about stuff that will make us thoughtful. She is someone who grew up in Singapore and got married into a small town in India. How many of us will choose to do this? She had a flying career but prioritized her kids first. Will we do the same? Its a generation gap, but our cohort was entitled to support and voices that led to being able to make a choice. And it is women like her who did not walk the path but opened the gates for us to find it and make it ours. As we close the Mothers day celebration for 2021, we are eternally grateful to all the mums out there who stood by their kids and paved the way for progress and empowerment. May we be them, May we raise them. We promise to incorporate your thoughts queries.

S02 E26: Self Love & Self Branding ft. Dr Falguni Vasavada

One of the biggest antagonists of our life is Patriarchy- a toxic philosophy that has governed so much of our existence. From simple things like not wearing shorts and exposing those sexy legs, to being pulled out of school for getting periods, the spectrum is huge and we all fit in somewhere or the other. And as a generation, we try to defy but there is always a side of guilt that never goes away. To talk about all this, we had Dr. Falguni Vasavada, someone who has been through it and has successfully empowered herself and now passes on the learning to numerous other women. She is a professor at MICA, an advertising and branding consultant to businesses, an Instagram celebrity, a national-level Garba player, and above all the role model we all want to have. She talks to us about the realizations she has had through the years, how toxic conditioning needs to be caught early and unlearned, how to tap into the confidence you already have and dust off the layers of what people say, and assures us that being ourselves is a superpower.

S02 E27: Sustainable Menstruation ft. Kathy & Jessamijn, Eco Femme

We buy it, we use it, and we wrap it in a piece of paper and let it go. What happens next? What happens is that it rests in a landfill beyond us and our future generations ignoring the earths requests to just decompose and move on. The pads. Layered with perfume and plastic. This World Environment Day 2021, we feel it is a good time to reconsider your choices, give a thought to Mother Earth and make that much-awaited switch to more sustainable and eco-friendly products. To help us out, we invited Kathy Jessamijn from Eco Femme, a social enterprise based out of Auroville in Pondicherry. They specialize in cloth pads and have been revolutionizing the period scene with their minimal waste cloth pads that come in various sizes.We discuss periods, our leakage stories, the issue of plastic and wastage, the yuckiness and earthiness of blood, and a sense of solidarity that menstruators share.

S02 Ep33: Pets, Plants and Unconditional Love ft. Natashja Rathore

A very special kind of love, that not everyone has the access, or the affinity to, is the love that pets give us. They cant talk but communicate so effectively, they cant think but make us so thoughtful, they arent educated but teach us so many valuable life lessons. And pets are family, pets are children- the most beloved and naughtiest kind. They add a unique flavour to life and make it all the more meaningful. And today, we have Natashja joining us to talk about the apple of our eye, Billaroo- our beautiful black Persian cat who recently passed away. She talks about finding her, training her, learning from her, and how she was definitely a guardian angel who made her a better person. Not to forget, we also talk about plants- the home ones and the wild ones, a visual treat so often either coexisting amidst the concrete chaos or stuck in a pot. Dont we all love nature, the soothing green colour, and the joy of flower colours and birdsSo, cuddle up with your pet baby, or sit beside your plant baby, or take a walk in nature- and tune in to hear it all about these adulthood companions that ease the tiredness of the long exhausting journey to Adulthood.

Left Right Left ft. Jalasmi Hathi, Our Producer - IVM Podcasts

Its 2021 and just like a lot of our life is governed by algorithms, so is Love. And by that we mean dating apps. While we are not zooming or scrolling miles on Instagram, an occasional break is that of swiping left and right to the various apps in the hope that we might just find our prince charming and all will be rosy again. But alas, that is not always the case. It does come with its fair share of side effects, pet peeves, and funny incidents- which is what we are going to discuss on the episode today. Joining us is our current producer, Jalasmi, the mumma of the show she says this show is her baby so... She has been in the scene for a while and has stuff to share. Moderated by Ayushi, this session is all about experiences, deal breakers, protocols and etiquettes, likes and dislikes, and just a general focus group discussion around the world of dating apps. So tune in, and while you listen to us, let your hands do the swiping. You can find Jalasmi on Instagram as hathi.ka.bachaWe promise to incorporate your thoughts queries.

Laws & Flaws ft. Poulomi Pavini Shukla, Lawyer, Supreme Court of India. 01:07:17

Laws & Flaws ft. Poulomi Pavini Shukla, Lawyer, Supreme Court of India.

We hear of babies being dumped in garbage, being left on the streets, abandoned in hospitals. Ever wondered what happens to them? The risk that these little lives have- of being contracted with diseases, of being left to die, of being adopted by persons for illegal activities- rarely is anyone fortunate to fall in safe hands that secure their future. The orphans of India- some who live in orphanages while some we come across on the streets either begging or selling stuff. Championing for the cause of these innocent children is Poulomi Pavini Shukla, a lawyer, writer, and humanitarian who is passionate about the plight of Indias orphans. She is a Wharton School alumna who is also interested in economic theory research and is a close observer of court proceedings in the fields of policy formulation and judicial activism. She frequently finds herself drawn towards writing, reading, and travelling when she has free time that is not consumed with social causes. Her desire to help the underserved, both humans and animals, fuelled her determination to take on one cause at a time and back it up with action.She is also a fellow adult who shares her adulthood lessons from having lived quite the adventurous life. Having seen women in her family smash patriarchy, she also has been rebellious, so to speak, and has been empowering herself and the people around her. Definitely a role model we all would want to look up to. So turn up the volume, have a good listen, and if you come across an orphan on your way somewhere, do stop by and have a little chat. Itll make their day and you might be of help to them and aid their empowerment.
