The Pops are joined on this episode by author Pratha Shetty. She spoke to the them about her latest book When I grow up, gender equality and much more. Pratha Rajeev Shetty is an interculturalist living between Mumbai and Paris. While learning and teaching about different cultures, she realised that each country has amazing women who can inspire generations! Unfortunately, not many children know about them. That's when she decided that she wanted to motivate children from all walks of life by telling them stories about women from diverse backgrounds. So that every child can see her/himself when they read this book. Apart from intercultural training, Pratha is also the creator of the group Sisters From Different Cultures where women from all around the world discuss problems they face in their countries and share ideas of how to overcome them.

Films are a great source of entertainment, especially Bollywood films. But sometimes you learn a thing or two about society and you can relate to the story or the characters in the film. Something similar happened to us when we watched HINDI MEDIUM where a couple from old Delhi, India aspire to give their daughter the best school education and do unimaginable things to get her there, even if it means stooping really low.  Peter and Nadir dissect the role of the parents in the film and the journey they go on to secure the admission of their only daughter. There were so many things that the Pops could connect with, in fact they have experienced many such events in their own lives. Have a listen to the episode and see if you find any similarities. The film stars the late actor Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar as the disgruntled parents. They are also supported by venteran actor Amrita Singh, and character actor Deepak Dobriyal.  You can watch the film on Amazon Prime - https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0T1S47OPGV756O4CNNY6SEN9II/ref=atv_dp_share_cu_r  Nadir currently leads the Business Development division at a digital agency.
