First Impressions





First impression is never the last.

The first deduction and inference is never the actual conclusion. With time everything changes- perspectives, viewpoints, our judgements about a person or a situation, our assumptions and our suppositions. Things, after all, may not be what they seem.

The grey characters overwhelm our minds- not the good or the bad ones, mind, but they who seem something at the beginning but after layers and layers of deconstruction become quite different beings. Like those characters having both dark and light shades, we are surrounded by people who seem ambiguous.

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
