gay literature

A spiritual and sensual prayer

“To avoid pain some resort to drinking or drugs, others to social media or sex. With silence, slowing down, awareness and compassion something else might happen. And this is what the narrator in the story eventually does. After fleeting chats and hookups, overconsumption of chocolate and Netflix, he goes to a silent retreat.”

I was recently interviewed in the Bangalore Mirror about my latest book
Taste and See. A Queer Prayer.

Short fiction & happy Pride!

Gay Flash Fiction just published a short text of mine, “TGV to Geneva”. I recommend reading it while listening to You Wish by N.O.W.
I hope you find the text subtly sexy. I sometimes feel the shame that society still attaches to sexuality and alternate sexuality such as gay sex in particular, but I will not let it restrict me. The publication coincides with Pride, a celebration that originates in the struggle of sexual and gender minorities. When I write - gay erotica or other texts - I will write under full name.
Happy Pride!

Erotic short story

My most porn-poetic text so far has been published by Erotic Review (described by The Independent as "filth for the middle classes or the nation's only genuinely intelligent journal of eroticism”). It is available here

It was later republished by the widely read gay magazine
Bent Magazine.

Engagement - short film script

Pink Pages, an Indian LGBT magazine, has published a film script I wrote.

Engagement by Vikram Kolmannskog is a story of two young gay lovers - one Hindu and the other Muslim - and how they seek to overcome the odds they face in the small town they call home.”

And an Indian director is interested in making a film based on it!
