Theme: Why Are We Scared of Pleasure?

When did India decide that families need planning and birth needs to be controlled? How did the small middle-class family become the aadarsh family? What did this do to poor and working class women? In this talk, a young scholar presents the extraordinary history of birth control in India and its consequences for our everyday lives.
