Deeksha is pursuing English Honours from Delhi University and is currently in her second year. She lives under the burden of not being able to complete hundred books in a day and seeks pleasure out of smashing the patriarchy. Apart from that, she believes in making this world a better place for everyone around her (including authors and fictional characters) one step at a time. She is probably listening to Hozier at the moment.
In the Indian imagination, an ‘Aunty’ is a middle-aged, usually fat woman who is married and has children. Young women, especially unmarried ones, either do not want to associate with the term or are expected to steer clear of it.
