Episode 53 (Season 4) April Aaj Ka Kabooter / Today’s Pigeon News

April 01, 2018

For this week’s Aaj Ka Kabootar aka Today’s Pigeon News, Sweety and Pappu dive right into April with our celebration of Dalit History Month. If you are not sure what that is, or if you’re unfamiliar with the caste system, let this segment be your primer.

The recent news about about 2.8 million CBSE students in Grade 10 and Grade 12 having to retake their exams really gave Pappu a cold sweat because it reminded her of her dreaded Board Exams (and that horrible reoccurring dream of her trying to match her LHS and RHS for a math exam).

Next up, Sweety & Pappu talk about the Cambridge Analytica and Facebook scandal (also don’t tell me you still have the Facebook app on your phone!). Bonus: we discuss Annihilation, Alex Garland’s latest sci-fi offering (spoilers!) and Pappu’s recent dating disasters. So tune-in and leggo!

Quotes:

“Don’t you feel sexier in your 30s? I think it’s because you feel more powerful and confident as you get older.” – Sweety & Pappu

“There is a theory that the caste system and division of people may have started with the best intentions, but over time, those that were considered unskilled, unfortunately ended up at the lowest end of society and eventually became known as the untouchables.” – Pappu

“We have to make sure we bring up our children neutral toward the caste system and not even disclose what caste they may be. Why preach such an unnecessary division?” – Pappu
