A letter

Hope this letter finds you In good health and heart Words to share are few Yet I write, before I depart. Amazing was the journey Excellent was the run All days were bright and sunny Memorable was the fun. It’s just two years Still feels like a decade Of friendship, love and cares Of the bond so delicately made. For never had I thought So intimate would be that bond-friendship. Of course, I would miss them a lot And promises I would surely keep. Now, the farewell has come Time has just flied….. All were sad, kept mum “These days have ended,” we sighed. Life would make itself busy again Hope we don’t lose contacts And here I remain… Your friend----Prats…

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
