Boyish is a 12 part essay series delivered over the course of a year which discusses masculinity and the growing up experience for boys in India. Each essay tackles a stereotype that boys often have to deal with growing up and then tells the story of an Indian 🇮🇳 man who defied the stereotype.
Many boys choose professions & lives based on how they perceive masculinity. They are bound to the demands and duties of manhood. With a poor understanding of what being masculine means, they often miss out on their true and happy self.
Boyish is an attempt to change that. It will nudge you to think more deeply about masculinity and how we raise boys in the context of India 🇮🇳 and hopefully provide you and young boys in your family with newer role models.
