A Day will Come



A day will come
When your heart will rush
You will feel a feeling
New altogether
Your steady eyes will wander
Through the crowd
Searching that perfect face
That was not even
A part of your day, yesterday
But today, is your life
That perfect face
For whom your heart beats,
Who makes your world complete,
You realise
Is already staring at you
From within the crowd
A river of feelings brush against you
A satisfaction of being missed
A longing quenched suddenly
A sense of being happy
Arrived so unexpectedly
A sense of chagrin that spreads
When you notice
You are basking in that unhindered gaze
That prolonged eye lock
That makes your heart flutter
And you are unable to pull back your eyes
You feel the heat rushing up to your cheeks
And that perfect face smiles at your blush
Turning his gaze down
To your relief.
Your day is done
Every breeze feels soothing
Every flower seems beautiful
Every moment is happy, happier
Your world is changed
Now someone occupies
Your once idle thoughts
Now someone seems
The dawn of your day
Now your lazy feet
Urge you to dance
Summer, winter, spring, autumn
All seem the same to you
You love the rain
Once you hated
You love poetry
Once you were bored with.

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
