Mohanaswamy has just lost his lover, Karthik, to a woman. He looks back on his life and recalls the choices he made, the friends he won and the people he lost. He dreams of a simpler life, a life of grace and dignity, a life that won’t be on the margins. He wishes to be himself and leave behind the humiliation of his past, the names he was called for being girlish as a child and for being attracted to boys later on.A coming out of the closet for Vasudhendra himself, these stories of homosexual love and lives jolted Kannada writers and readers out of their notions of acceptable and literary. It also serves as a fine introduction to one of the most refreshing and bravest voices in Kannada literature.
