Ep 5 Don't Cry: Be a Man

What's a Man? Masculinity in India

09-03-2021 • 49 mins

Emotional literacy for men is not a luxury but a necessity for a peaceful world. In this episode, Dr. Deepa Narayan asks whether today’s younger generation of men is able to identify and express a range of emotions, including sadness, grief, hurt, and disappointment. Conversations with over 250 young boys and men from middle and upper-class families establish that while young men know it is important to be emotionally expressive, they are unable to do so. Their training still teaches them that ‘real men’ are invincible and do not show their emotions - except anger. To help us understand, our special guests are Dr. Ashis Roy, a psychoanalyst, and Neville Shah, a comedian.
