For the 150 million-plus LGBTs in India, Jatin Johar proves to be a nightmare. Thanks to this new-found bugbear, LGBTs in India find themselves suddenly maligned. They all stand marked out as potential criminals in the eyes of an asinine law.
Did Jatin Johar realise the gravity of the injustice he had perpetrated? Did he finally muster the moral courage to accept that he was responsible for making the apex court an antithesis of justice? Why did his justice wife tear into him for his verdict? What did she know which Jatin Johar didn't? When did he realise his folly? Finally, what made him confess and cry within himself?
This explosive suspense-filled work is former Justice Johar's story as much it is the story of all those much-maligned millions. Classified as a factionette, "Who took the Orange from my Rainbow?" is a novelette, a gay rights factionette, a fictional work couched in nearly 8,000 words deftly spun around a few revolting facts that occurred in India recently. Though the factionette is dedicated to the 150 million-plus persecuted LGBTs in India, this timeless story is equally relevant to LGBTs elsewhere. Particularly more so to all those LGBTs languishing in those 77 homophobic regions on this earth. This factionette is dedicated to them as well.
This novelette is sure to melt your hearts and move you to tears.............When that happens, you are sure to ensure no one takes the orange from the rainbows. This is Harish Kumar's debut novelette.
About the Author
Harish Kumar is a former business and financial journalist with an exposure to the printed word for more than two decades, 23 years to be precise. Committed to sharp writing, editing, analysing and commenting, Harish Kumar has served most of the leading business dailies, fortnightlies and dot-coms in India.
As an Indie author, Harish Kumar is noted for his rare insight into Indian linguistic quirks and eccentricities, language thoughts and philosophy, and linguistic attitudes and approaches. As a keen observer of the English language and the interesting twists and turns it takes in modern-day journalism, Harish Kumar has ended up becoming an Anglophile himself, a lover of words to begin with and now a commentator on words and their idiosyncrasies.
So, Harish Kumar loves writing on transformation of words, new avatars in usage of words and the rampant abusage of simple words today, particularly when the writer-speaker tries to employ them as word-metaphors. Thus, you can say Harish Kumar is an incorrigible metaphorist. He is also an accomplished commentator on journalese of the times.
Harish Kumar also loves writing fiction on human interest themes, besides authoring original works in areas of business, banking and finance.
As a relentlessly pen-pushing scribe, Harish Kumar has authored more than 1,500 stories, many of them dealing with path-breaking and trend-setting themes. He has even produced some globally-acclaimed ranking lists. Some of these lists have taken him to the pages of the prestigious International Who's Who of Professionals (1998) and the Baron's Who's Who in Global Banking and Finance (1999).
Harish Kumar is now a self-publishing author on the Amazon platforms, Amazon KDP and Amazon CreateSpace, and an aspiring Smashwords author-publisher. Launching his second writing career only recently in 2013, Harish Kumar has authored and self-published as many as six titles already.
These are: Metaphoric Madness, More Metaphoric Madness, Much More Metaphoric Madness, Who Took the Orange from my Rainbow? Mega Projects Mega Realities, and Canons of Corporate Surgery.
All these titles are available both as an e-book in Amazon Kindle stores and as a print-to-order paperback in Amazon CreateSpace stores, in as many as 12 national markets around the world.
