Are you familiar with that very loaded Indian expression "Log Kya Kehenge?"
The English translation is "what will people say? " And when the expression is used "people" doesn't usually mean the people that actually love and support us. It's usually the community, elders in the family, even un-related Aunties!
In this episode my guest Mitali from the podcast Brown Game Strong, and I attempt to uncover why "log kya kehenge" is such a driving force in our lives. Is there a balance between being a brown girl that rocks the boat and lives life on her own terms, and not letting your parents down? Can we be proud of our culture whilst smashing stereotypes?
Have a listen and let us know your thoughts too.

In this episode I'm joined by Food Behaviour Coach and Mum of two, Ravneet from Neet Nutrition. We talk about body image, self esteem, health, happiness and our long journeys to loving and accepting ourselves.
