Just as nice when dad plays mom (Jayashree Nandi, Times of India)

New Delhi: Raghu doesn’t like being called a nurse. “Call us brother, not nurse,” he says. He considers himself a ‘helper’ and not a caregiver. Manish is a dancer in a local dance troupe, but doesn’t like playing a woman in the performance . He prefers doing numbers based on Lord Shiva instead. “Shiva is macho and wears only rudraksha jewellery . I am comfortable with that,” he says. These young men’s dilemmas were documented by Centre for Health and Social Justice as part of a 2011 study to understand issues that men face in alternative professions.
