Bouts of Emotion


Bouts of Emotion

Deep within, the rhythm goes on
The solitary heart beats for the soul forlorn.
The vibrant emotions overflow, o hold!
As the insane night creeps on the world.

How it tries, to escape through the haze of pain
The guardian angels leave, their comrades all slain.
Eyes swollen, but tears, not even a drop,
All sucked in by the thirsty hope.

Weeping again on the graveyard sight
Happiness, Love, Peace—all buried underneath.
“Come to me,” the wailing emotions urge,
Only, into the blank air does it merge.
As deep within, the rhythm goes onThe solitary heart beats for the soul forlorn

Queeristan by Parmesh Sahani

  Queeristan (Amazon Link) Thanks to Audible Free Trial I listened to this amazing non-fiction on LGBTQ inclusion in Indian workplaces. Author Parmesh Sahani identifies as gay Indian, working closely with Godrej higher management and employees for years to create an inclusive workplace, both legally and in spirit. This book is a result of those years of experience, research, collaboration with individuals from difference spectrum of the society and organizations who has successfully transitioned into a queer friendly one.   Indian history is inclusive. From the Khajuraho temple architectures, to Konark to the Rig Veda, there is existing proofs even 2000 years ago of Indian inclusiveness of queer. It’s the draconian British law that criminalised it, which was scraped in 2009, came into effect once again following a sad judgement in 2013 and eventually was scraped off for good in 2018. I am in awe of the lawyers who fought this legal battle- colleagues and partners – Arundhati Katju
