Lost Love


A 55 fiction by Namrata-

Ria held the photograph tightly to her chest and cried. She cried for her. She cried for him. She cried for them. “If you are a dream, I never want to wake up” he would say, making her blush. But today those words of his are hurting her the most, for he didn’t wake up...

They say the lesser the words one uses to express oneself, the deeper and richer are his/ her thoughts. But conveying a thought, an emotion, or even an element of shock in just 55 words was never my cup of tea. I learn a tip or two from Privy Trifles, aka Namrata, whose words, I'm so glad to have as a guest post.

“It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Well, that's my ambition too...

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
