Cyrus Says

Indus Vox Media

On this episode, Cyrus is joined by Prachi Gangwani, a writer, founder of Keeping Zen, and author of the new book 'Dear Men: Masculinity and Modern Love in #MeToo India'. She talks about what made her write the book, working at a women's lifestyle magazine, some of the common experiences that women face in relationships, what problems men experience in today's heterosexual relationships, couple dynamics, inbuilt sexism and misogyny, and tons more. Cyrus and Prachi also talk about Prachi having studied psychology, masculinity and what it actually means, whether men truly understand what masculinity is, interviewing men for her book about their relationships and sex-lives, how Indian men are often more toxic and rigid when it comes to gender stereotypes, how this can be improved, asking the question "Do you know when your partner is faking in bed?", and lots more.

They also talk about Prachi running Keeping Zen and what they do, how couples can know if they need counselling, the need to normalise therapy, and more. Tune in for a fun and important conversation.
