Menaka always wanted to be one of the cool, sporty girls in her school. As a child she’d play for hours on the street, but as she got older she found herself retreating indoors, a place she was told was ‘safer’. As she grew older, how did she reclaim her right to exercise and play outdoors?
Our thanks to Mathangi, Aakanksha, Yamini and Kamala.
