Passing Away

Shimmering lights


Will fade up soon,




This brightness shall not

Be there, in the noon.



I won’t be there

To see the morn.



You enjoy the days

The stars, the moon and the sun.



I’ll come back sure, just

After a brief sojourn.



Parting is difficult

Don’t say goodbye…



Hold my hands

I’m not going that far away.



Don’t bade me farewell

With so tearful eyes.



Let it be a happy one

Smile! Stop those cries.







I’ll be leaving behind

All bonds, relations, all ties.



Thousands of emotions shall be left unexpressed

Thousands of words, unspoken…..



Works undone, moments inexperienced

As life fades and hopes shrunken.



As life’s cradle heads to the grave

And the beating heart retards..



Senses get numb, vision starts blurring out,

I ponder over life and the unspoken words.



I can’t bear the poignancy of parting and separation

The tearing sorrow and unbearable pain.



I don’t want to grieve more,

Lie here and ask when….?



Memories crop up, as moments slip by

Into the lap of eternity.



I stand on the fringes now

Tomorrow, I won’t be anymore, an entity.

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
