KarmicKids makes it to academia: Mothering Narratives in Contemporary India by Sucharita Sarkar

Delighted that Karmickids which began purely as an effort to document my son’s growing years, and my journey as a mother, is now part of academia as a chapter in Sucharita Sarkar‘s Ph.D Thesis on mothering narratives in contemporary India, with a special focus on mom blogs written between 2000-2013. Congrats Sucharita Sarkar, it has been a long journey and I am honoured that Karmickids could be part of your journey to a doctorate too.
