Senses

How would life be.. Without The pleasing fragnance of the earth After the first downpour, the first shower. A rose's sweet perfume... And the scent of wild flowers. The aroma of mummy's homemade delicious dishes And all other pleasant odours all around. The sight of  Nature's numerous manifestations The aesthetic beauty...the godly illusions and illustrations..

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
