It's simple, normalise women loitering. Normalise women aimlessly wandering and being footloose flaneurs.
These are photos of us working a little, loitering a little at a lovely spot in Chitrakoot called Ganesh Bagh. In between news takes, we climbed trees and swirled around 19th century pillars like filmstars. Why loiter? Because it's fun!
