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..
The river, the dark night, the twilight
The sunset over the lake
The view of the world heritage sites
The ancient and antique treasures of history
The varied cultures, traditions..the festivals
The pomp and show..the enjoyment
The glimpse of a thing of beauty
A painting, a flower..a miniature representation
Of His creation.........
Or just ...an emotion..an expression of love.

Hearken...
The music of Nature
The thunderstorm..the whirling,whistling wind.
The outburst of Nature's inlaid anger
The rhythmic flow of the river
The beat of the heart..
The breeze whistling through the trees..
The chirrupings..the tunes of the natural world...
Listen...
The song of the soul...
That spreads a message
And..call their names..
That touches hearts....

Feel....
The texture of the earth.....
The sand, the gravel...the pebbles.....
The delicate petals of a flower
The vibrations of belongingness
From your kith and kins...
The wet touch of drizzling rain...
The crystalline snow,frost and... the dew....

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
