Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts invites you to the virtual book release of No Straight Thing Was Ever Made by Urvashi Bahuguna, followed by a conversation with writer & editor Harsimran Gill. This is Episode XXIX of ListenIN.
As a person with mood disorders that sprung up in her late teens, Urvashi Bahuguna had to navigate being the first person in her Indian family to admit to and seek help for a mental illness. The changes and challenges which came with this admission and the actions that followed not only impacted who she became as a person but also everything around her-from her interpersonal relationships, both familial and romantic, to the way she walked among her friends and peers and the manner in which she connected with art, literature, popular culture, they all became new and unknown.
In conversation with Harsimran Gill, Bahuguna will talk about her personal narratives, anecdotes from conversations and research-driven storytelling, and the opportunities and roadblocks that come her way with the tools she has available to her.
