This Blog is for YOU...

If you are/were Gender Dysphoric - so as to know some from me and share some with me, and reaffirm that none of us is alone... To acknowledge that we have a treasure of insurmountable Courage, Strength and Hope in us. I have a feeling that we were given slightly higher quantities of those special gifts :-) [If you have a question to ask me, you could write it as a Comment to one of the posts, and either I would reply to it as a Comment itself, or probably, respond in one of the future posts on this blog]

If you have never been Gender Dysphoric - so as to understand what it means to have a Gender Identity Disorder. Of course, it primarily depends on whether you want to or not. If you don't, please do make a quiet exit and try not to be a nuisance.

If you're confused - so as to realize that everybody goes through a stage of confusion - the period could be short, or sometimes, very long. What is important is to acknowledge that being unsure until you're sure is as normal and as alright as night before day.


If you're a human being - so as to find out for yourself whether you want to try to make the world a better place to live in, for every fellow human being, irrespective of their health, wealth, colour, race, gender, religion and any and every other line of division you can think of.


And finally, this blog is for ME - so as to be able to make some difference somewhere by sharing my experiences, and along the way, slowly grow out of those anxieties and insecurities that have inhabited my life for over 2 decades. It is time to escort them to the door now!

Come, Join me on this journey!

A Dost Story

I have written a piece titled 'Facing the Mirror' for the latest issue of India's first magazine for sexual minorities. The magazine is called 'Bombay Dost', and the issue is now out. You can catch a glimpse of it at the link below, but the Preview has only one page of my article. To read the entire conversation, catch hold of a personal copy [The link also says where and how to get it].

Hope you enjoy reading it, and do give me your feedback! :)

Happy New Year!

A year of plenty Firsts and many Lasts,
Painting the Futures and Wrapping the Pasts,
several Handshakes and some Goodbyes,
of Merry-making and Teary Eyes,
Flowing back to the Sea-side City,
Unravelling the secret - Life's so pretty!
Thank you 2009!
You were just fine! :)
