Writing in 2005, he ends his essay speculating #NarendraModi’s eventual rise to the position of the prime minister, a prediction then and a present now where the #Godhra riots gradually fade in the background. Like the public doesn’t like lifelong romances, its enmities too are short-lived, when it knows and till it knows there’s dividend in return of its loyalty.

Bold and revealing extract from I.S. Johar's "proposed book", My Sexual Nirvana (not sure if the book ever materialized), published in the 80s in the now defunct Sunday magazine.
"Thirman and Indru (me) are screwing," Gulu wailed, "and they are not including me."

Later, there were nights
I begged for your teeth
around my nipples – these
dark round unseeing eyes.
Hold them in your hands and
squeeze them tight
– I like being vandalized.

Praneta Jha​ in +Antiserious​ this week. 
Praneta Jha questions the gaze that mass of flesh we call breasts face each day. And takes us back to a familiar lane, "Song the Breasts Sing to the Late-in-Life Boyfriend.”

"Aruna Shanbaug, your death and your 40-years long struggle is a symbol of everything that is wrong with independent India. You were violated time and again, denied your right to a dignified life and a peaceful death. We hope you find in death, what you never got when alive. Rest in Peace."
Aruna Shanbaug died today. It finally is the end of her agony. She's left behind unasked questions that we need to keep asking ourselves. Lest we forget her

"Call genital organs with their name, using the words that you use when you talk to your wife, your girlfriend, your lover."
In this age of euphemisms and censorship Yannis Ritsos reminds us of the need to be indecent. If you want to say shit, say "shit", forget those ****.
