Recently Mumbai Metro witnessed something new. Passengers broke into an antakshari session. Two teams were clearly made between the ladies seating area and the general seating area and what followed was the entire compartment bonding over antakshari.
The post also mentioned how a student who lived in Ghatkopar travelled all the way back to Versova just to be a part of this antakshari session. “Each time we start singing we are expecting someone to say “stop making a noise! I can’t hear my phone call” but it’s never happened,” mentioned the post.
Feminist movements have, time and again, reclaimed public spaces to give women to make women feel safe when venturing out.
