About Us

A podcast by two young Indian women who want to be the voice of reason that fails to be heard in certain Indian households. The podcast is designed to bring meaningful conversations on relationships, dating, education, and feminism into Indian homes. Meenal is an Indian who was raised outside of India in a very traditional Indian household while Ankita was raised in India in a more liberal household. So when these two girls get together, the conversation gets rolling.

Episode 91

In this episode, I reflect on how things have changed so drastically over the last 12 months. Working hard isn't just about passing my state exams in medical school anymore - it's a whole new dimension in this new phase of my life. One of my biggest learning points over the last few months is that you shouldn't pat yourself on the back for achieving the basics. Patting yourself on the back from time to time is okay, but sometimes you need good mentors to push you to your limit. And once you reach your limit, the best mentors will push you even more. Listen in to see how I went from commuting almost 3.5 hours after a night shift or 8 hour day in the hospital just so I could achieve my dream of being on the radio. A special thanks to Sabras Radio and Raj Baddhan for believing in me!

Episode 90: We Have A Listener On The Show!

After releasing my thoughts on feminism in episode 88, I had a very interesting interaction with a listener. We spoke about how we feel this new era of feminism has left us in a position where we don't really know where we stand. CAUTION: A lot of you will disagree with what I will say in this episode and I welcome all of you to explain why you disagree. You can email me at meenal@desioutsiders.com Thank you all for joining me in this very important discussion, I have learnt so much over the last few weeks, and I hope we can all learn together!

Pam Sidhu - The Art Of Mindfulness

Over the last few weeks, I have been trying to find productive ways to deal with stress. One easy and adaptable practice is mindfulness. Pam helps hundreds of people in her work as a mindfulness coach and has been studying the science and benefits behind this practice for years. In this episode, Pam talks to us about how we can incorporate this into our daily lives and the benefits we can expect by practicing some mindfulness on a daily basis. You can find out more about Pam's work on www.learn2rest.com. Enjoy!

Pam Sidhu - The Art Of Mindfulness

Am I A Feminist?

This International Women's Day, apart from celebrating all the amazing women who have influenced my life, I want to use this opportunity to re-evaluate what it means to be a woman in the #MeToo era. Feminism is a strong force that is slowly taking over every aspect of our life, but to where do we draw the line? Are we being counterproductive with our feminist thoughts and ideas or is feminism really creating the difference that women need?

Episode 86 - Until next year

Following from last week's episode, we unexpectedly jumped into a conversation about finding the true definition of happiness - of course, Meenal is questioning if it really exists after the few weeks she has been through (yes, she has a dark side)! With the new year approaching, both of us reflect on our personal growth, our future growth and share all our hopes and dreams for the coming year. Thank you for being a part of our podcast, and we promise to bring you more in the coming year. We love you all!

Episode 85 - Dead inside

When Meenal receives an email that reads "you sound depressed, are you okay?" - we know something is clearly wrong. It's been an interesting couple of weeks for both of us. Each of us experiencing life in different ways and trying to learn from our experiences as much as possible. Not every day will be a happy, bubbly day - a concept Meenal is trying to get a hold of. Tune in to find out why we didn't record last week and why Meenal sounds "dead inside".

Episode 84 - When the going gets tough

Life can get busy. So busy that we both didn't even get a moment to sit and record an episode last week. But it's okay, because sometimes we have to accept that life can get crazy and we can always find ways to work around it. We are currently learning how to deal with our hectic work schedules and still have time to record a podcast and also deal with our ongoing daily life activities. We talk about our struggles and how we have found our own personal ways of overcoming our anxiety of trying to get enough done during our working days. If you have any suggestions for us, please send them over - as you'll listen, you'll realize we need all the help we can take!

Epsiode 83 - Long-Distance Relationships

**Shane (the guy who edits this show and is married to the short one)** - This time, it's my bad that the episode was late. I'm a little tied up in Seattle as part of a work trip. Apologies. * * * Long distance relationships aren't always easy and we've all had to deal with it at some point in our life. We discuss how we've dealt with our own relationships, how we've overcome the difficulties and some tips on how to make things a little easier when you're far away from your loved ones. Enjoy!
