Kaam ya Aaraam? Is that a gendered question?

While the rest of us are watching #TheGreatIndianKitchen, we thought we we will go to a real one. This audio story then, straight from ours to yours.

The year is 2020. A mother and daughter meet again during lockdown. A pot of milk keeps boiling over. The kitchen becomes fraught, angry, memories are triggered.

A mother and daughter meet again during lockdown. The kitchen becomes the place they see each other, as if for the first time.
