Patnewali Ep 2: Balkatti Parkatti

In this episode, we meet 16 years old Sanskaranand who has opinions on ladies-log. He tries to explain and recommend to Patnawali that she should keep long hair. Tune in to find out what Patnawali said as she held him by his ears. In that way, is any city different from making a list of things for ladies-log?

Do cities live within us or do we live in the city? Swati urf Patnawali loves to spin around with this idea as she picks up characters from around her and takes you to the gullies,nukkad, chauraha and homes of Patna. Through these character-esque stories, written and narrated by Swati Kashyap, we meet her city.
