How does one assess one’s privilege? What role does privilege play in perpetuating gender, caste, and class divisions? Where does privilege denial come from? Is reservation necessary to counter inherited privilege of the so-called upper castes?

In this latest instalment of Ye Bhi Theek Hai, Kunal and Sanjay ponder the questions and excuses made around the notion, and the in-your-face reality, of privilege. They also examine, with the help of anecdotes and imaginable scenarios, how privilege plays out in their own lives.
