The women of the Bachchan family have been setting the social media on fire with their conversations on the podcast ‘What The Hell Navya’.
Has secularism ever fulfilled its mandate in India or was it always sent askew by communal politics?
Caught between a deeply religious citizenry and a religion-driven polity, secularism is facing threat both as an ideal and as a practice
Indian secularism has had a chequered history where political expediency means trading off secular ideals for power
Right wing forces are marching centre stage across the world in a worrying development
Secularism, in modern terms, means mostly the separation between religion and state, but it has been interpreted differently across the world

The women of the Bachchan family, Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda and Navya Naveli Nanda have been setting the social media on fire with their conversations on the podcast 'What The Hell Navya'.
While earlier they spoke about financial independence, the conversation this time around was focussed on female health and wellness including topics like menopause, period stories and sex education.

Commenting on the concept of all-round health and wellness of women, Shweta Nanda during the recent episode about 'Biology: Blessed But Biased', said: "A lot of women lose a lot of self-confidence and it leads to mental health issues and no one helps you through it. Indian women don't know anything about bone health. You don't know that Calcium is so important for you after a certain stage because our bones just go weak. We're infamous for this."
The show aims to create a safe space for women across all age groups with the hosts representing three generations and bringing in different perspectives.
Jaya Bachchan feels that conversation around women is changing very slowly. "It should have been headlines today," she said.
Navya finds women's healthcare platforms run by men pretty ironic.
Created by IVM Podcasts, 'What The Hell Navya' promises to be a riot, with a lot of leg-pulling, real conversations from the trifecta – Jaya, Shweta and Navya.
In every episode, the hosts share their thoughts on financial independence, careers, love, parenting and friendship.
