About
Anandibai Joshi, Indiaís first female physician, was a trailblazer. In spite of being married to a man twenty years elder to her, who was also a hypocrite showing off his liberal attitude, Anandibai defied the prevailing patriarchal conventions and set sail to America to become the first Indian female MD physician in the year 1886. She was not an ordinary feat. Her achievement paved the way for Indian females to see themselves beyond the household. It freed them from the shackles of restrictions and compulsions. It proved that females can have an identity other than that of a mother, wife and daughter. That she can be her own being. An individual. Itís been 150 years since then. Have things really changed? Are Indian women 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? Yes, there has been progress. In terms of education, careers, lifestyle choices but can we say the same about our attitude and our mindset? "Dr. Anandibai - Like, Comment, Share" - Play tries to answer these questions.
