Mumbai Theatre Guide commences a series in which eminent theatre people share their thoughts, in the form of monologues, stories and poems.

Manasi Prabhakar Joshi reads from Geeta Manek's play about Dr Anandibai, India's first female doctor, directed by Manoj Shah. A performance dedicated to India's corona battling doctors.

About Play

Anandibai Joshi, India's first female physician, was a trailblazer. In spite of being married to a man twenty years older to her, and who was also a hypocrite, Anandibai defied the prevailing patriarchal conventions and set sail to America to become the first Indian female MD physician in the year 1886. Hers was not an ordinary feat. Her achievement paved the way for Indian women to see themselves beyond the household. It's been 150 years since then. Have things really changed? Are Indian women really free? Free from the drudgery of the household chores? Is she free to think of her own desires, wishes and needs? Is she free from her constant need of validation and approval from the men in her life? The play tries to answer these questions.
