Eun Dae Gu #atozchallenge

you are all surrounded

Eun Dae Gu, the lead character in the Korean sitcom ‘You are all surrounded’ is stubborn, mysterious with too many secrets, and seemingly arrogant at first. He joins the Gangnam Police Department as a trainee aspiring to become a detective, after graduating from the law school, with reasons secret and vengeful. He is reserved with an angry and revengeful look perpetual on his face; talks less with his team mates, disapproves easily and compliments very rarely. But his past is deep, and tragic. His never ending search for truth and justice have made him emotionally closed.

Dae Gu had a quiet childhood in the small town of Masan with his single mother, whom the society viewed with suspicious eyes and whispered names resembling ‘mistress’ behind the back. His name was different then- Kim Ji Young. Dealing with bullies and bad mouthing about his mother, he still grew to be a studious student. He had the shock of his life when he was fifteen. He witnessed his mother being murdered while he hid under the bed, unable to do anything. The tragedy shook him to the core, leaving him to fend for himself. Shocked and befuddled he left the town, sought asylum in an orphanage, adopted a new name, joined college with the help of a secret sponsor-er and vowed to bring justice to his mother.

Amid solving small cases, and learning the tactics of a detective, Eun Dae Gu and the three other newbie’s discover strange and coincidental leads to solve the 11 year old case. People are not what they seem and evidences reveal a new dimension to the murder case. Something bigger is at stake and too many people are involved. The revelation of the mystery bit by bit makes this sitcom a nail-biting thriller.

Would suggest this series to every thriller lover.


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
