‘Hautesteppers 3.0′ Ep7: Mayanti Langer Reveals Trolls Asked Her To Commit Suicide After Her Husband’s Bad Performance On Field

In India, journalism is still considered to be a man’s job. There is a stereotypical notion among people, that women will not be able to take up hard-core journalism as a career option. However, this mindset has been proven wrong on several occasions by women. Sports journalism is not prevalent in our country, nevertheless, women in this area also have created a mark already. One such great example is Mayanti Langer. A sports journalist who has hosted world cups and uncountable cricket matches. However, no matter what heights she achieved, she still had to encounter conservative ideas and thoughts. In a recent interview with Hauterrfly, Mayanti Langer talked about one aspect of his encounter which was the blames she received for the poor on-field performance of her husband, Stuart Binny.
