It was after reading the suicide note of Dalit student Rohith Vemula that Yashica Dutt, a journalist living in New York, decided that she was going to stop living a lie. It was in that moment that she decided that she was going to admit to her friends and colleagues something that she had hidden for years - that she was Dalit. In this episode she talks to Sandip Roy about her memoir, Coming Out as Dalit, that details her experience of passing off as upper caste, coming to terms with her new identity and the insidious ways in which the caste system continues to affect the Indian society.

Today Shakespeare is considered as part of highbrow literature but in his own day it was the quintessential ‘masala’ entertainment. This is why when author Jonathan Gil Harris was watching the film Lagaan in 2001, he came to realize that a lot of Bollwood's masala films resonated deeply with Shakespeare's work. In this episode Harris talks to Sandip Roy about his book, Masala Shakespeare: How a Firangi Writer Became Indian, explains to us the ways in which Indian films are closely related to the work of Shakespeare and how the 'masala' genre celebrates India's cultural diversity.
