Vedika Gupta studied literature and media at Ashoka University. A national level tennis player, an Air Force aspirant, an avid writer, she’d probably have dipped her toes in new waters when you meet her. Her experimenting in cooking varies from parathas to pasta and everything in between. She can do an 80kg deadlift, but won’t bear the weight of patriarchy and sexism. She can be found on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
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.
