“I used to be born in Lucknow, however my options are North-Eastern. A way that you simply don’t belong nor slot in will be each liberating and draining.

I grew up in an atmosphere the place the thought of enjoyable was gendered. Girls weren’t inspired to specific themselves individualistically. Some of us wouldn’t conform to the systemic conditioning and tried to interrupt freed from gender roles: we rebelled by studying the right way to trip a bike, doing issues on our personal, pursuing untraditional pursuits and profession selections. That first smoke, hanging out with boys, befriending people with numerous non secular identities. Essentially chasing a way of freedom, we have been determinedly unprejudiced in our lifestyle. Through this shoot, I take a look at how younger Lucknowites are unlearning internalised misogyny and redrawing the traces of socio-economic hierarchies whereas rejecting outdated traditions.”
