my mouth is an abyss full of home invasion stories . TW- Rape, Sexual Abuse . 2001 i was six when fida begum told me marriage is for those who prefer unpaid sex and i lost my appetite for daal chawal because knowing what sex meant, was more important than being with a man who knew how to carry the moving old bed tradition forward, mother banned her entry home and i lost an honest answer to a woman of loose character . 2006 i was in mid school when “a boy” put his hand inside my shirt and pulled my bra strap, and maa said it’s normal for boys to do it, so i prayed to god and said make me one before we go on losing out on too many women in our lives, before a little too many bra straps are pulled and god sits there ready to forgive . 2010 i am sixteen and uncle tom tells me it’s okay for young girls to have sex at sixteen and i remember what fida begum said so i said never for free and he laughs at my face saying what a tragedy, but puts his hands amid my thigh anyway- so i scream but his hands are longer than amma’s midnight stor- ies and now, i was a part of one at the mercy of a man 36 years older to me. 2012 i am eighteen and boys around look at my breasts like they are sunsets in bali but i know what honour and traditions mean because baba told me men are a little too open from a young age and i looked at maa’s pregnant face while she oils the evening pakoras as a ritual sweating in the kitchen because her mother was a much worse teacher than mine . 2015 i am in college and by now i have forgotten to count on my fingers the number of times a man touches you because his hormones are more raging than yours; now, my hands are sea ores, my hips is a land for crashing planes, my legs are street lights that flicker at the sound of approaching dogs- my mouth is an abyss full of tasteless humor and bitter home invasion stories . 2019 i am in love and madly so with a man who looks like god; a man who holds my hands like ancient city maps, a man who turns around to kiss like a wayward storm and even after having lost everything my mouth feels like a beautiful poem he reads every wednesday . @_kavyasharma

Nandita has been one of the strongest women in Bollywood. She portrayed a homosexual character for the first time in Deepa Mehta’s 1996 film, Fire. She made her directorial debut with Firaaq in 2008 and her recent venture includes Manto that stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui.


Gauri Shinde:



Gauri has only made two films in Bollywood as of now including English Vinglish and Dear Zindagi. But, the director has proven her worth. She has an ability to dive deep and bring out the best human emotions. She creates films for the logical audience and that’s something that we all need.


 Shonali Bose:



The National Film Award winner has some many great films to her name. She made Margarita with a Straw, which was the first one to portray same-sex relationship on celluloid in India. She will be coming back with The Sky Is Pink starring Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, and Zaira Wasim.
