Welcome back to The Warrior Queen Podcast for Part 2 of the conversation between Swati Bhise and Sivagami “Shiva” Subbaraman. The episode begins with Swati Bhise expressing that it is okay to have a chosen family that is different than your blood relatives. The pair speak about South Asian Society and the struggle that comes with “breaking the silence” in many of those communities. Swati and Shiva call for the acceptance of beauty in every color; whether you are black, brown, white, or gold. Shiva states that she is working for the next generation of South Asian youth and through artistic expression, she wishes to broaden their acceptance and understanding of others. Swati & Shiva share the joint message to eliminate prejudice and furthermore, to demystify the judgments that we make on others. Shiva hopes to lead by example and sites the importance of documentary theatre, where students can walk in the shoes of their predecessors and hopefully by doing so, learn the ability to take that empathy back into their own world.
