Book Description

The year was 1991. Vivek was eight. He realized he was gay. Only he didn't: he just figured that he wanted to be different. And that he was in love -- for want of a better word -- with Deepak his best friend. Then Mast Kalandar released with Anupam Kher playing Pinku a stereotypical gay character. And Vivek realized he didn't want to be Pinku. So he tried to walk differently gesticulate differently and speak in as gruff a voice as he could -- all to avoid being Pinku.

Funny poignant heartwarming and heart-breaking all at once this is a memoir of growing up gay in India in the 1990s with Bollywood books and the Bombay sea for company.
