Who Took the Orange from my Rainbow?
An LGBT rights Factionette
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 Jatin 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 fictional work couched in 7,800 words deftly spun around a few facts that occurred in India.
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. The 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.
