{inspired by a cellphone SMS}


How heavy I feel,


When you look at me….O dear!


With tearful eyes


And I can smile at you Not.
How heavy I feel,
When you greet me goodbye,
With that shaking, trembling voice
And I can greet you Not.

How heavy I feel,
When tears roll down your cheeks…
Those dew drops I had treasured
And I can console you Not.

How heavy I feel,
When you give a heart-rending cry—
Calling out my name
And I can come back Not.

It is then,
That I realize…..
You are sitting,
Beside my grave…

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
