Another Week Gone By #MondayMusings

Weeks and weekends seem to pass by in a jiffy these days. Another Monday has arrived.

I read a book this week- Six Degrees by It is a compilation of three different stories with the same set of characters, but a different plot, narrative, and voice. I liked reading it. It was a new, one of a kind of experience. I felt like watching three different movies with the same characters- at the end, it kind of felt surreal.

I watched Kapoor & Sons in my laptop. Finally, yes! I loved it. I watched it in three days, part by part. Occasionally, I replayed scenes, paused a lot to savor the moment, took many breaks to dab the tears, and hummed the tunes to myself in the bathroom. I fell in love with the flawed, not so perfect family. I adored the mischievous GrandPa played by Rishi Kapoor- he indeed was the backbone of the family, the one singular person that connected every emotionally estranged member. I empathized with the brothers who loved each other but were never at peace. I was charmed by the beautiful backdrop of Coonur, and the acting of the cast. One of the most memorable family movies I have watched.

Apart from these, mornings had me practice a bit of Yoga- usually those breathing Pranayams to reduce my extra belly fat. But on the contrary, I would watch FoodFood channel for hours trying to decide which recipe to prepare in the weekend. Then I would sit calmly for minutes sipping my homemade cup of Kaddha, for cough and cold. I love sipping- be it tea, coffee, Horlicks, or even Kaddha. Monsoon is here, and with the change of season, I am trying to cope up with coughs and sneezes.

I listened to a lot of music yesterday. Sunday night, feeling low, music was the best therapy.

Next month is special. So, as June draws to a close I plan for the next month. Smiles! Happy week ahead!

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
