Miss Me, Will You?



Would I fade away in time?
Would I fade away from your memory?
Like the wisp of a distant wish,
Like the figment of an imagination,
Like the morning dream
That ought to be forgotten.

Or will I linger?
Somewhere in the recesses of your mind,
Somewhere in between remembrances
Somewhere in the multiple folds of nostalgia.

In wintry evenings,
In the warmth of winter robes,
In bubblegums and Cornettos
In voices missed,
In silences of words unspoken.

Will I remain
Somewhere in blurred videos
And ill shot snaps.
Somewhere in neon greens,
In articulation of my name
Somewhere in elevators and stairs
And roads that perhaps go nowhere.

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
