যেখানে দু-পা হাঁটলে দশ-পা র অভিমান
যেখানে প্রসেনিয়ামের পাশে রণ-
পা ভুলেছে প্রবেশ
যে দু-পায়ে পায়ের পাতা নেই অথচ
লম্বা স্টাডস
ইট কংক্রিটের ভেতর কেমন লাল
ফুটিয়ে বসন্ত জানান
কেমন বেগুনি মেরে যাই এইসব কৃষ্ণ ফোঁস
চূড়ায়
কেবলই জানতে ইচ্ছে করে কলেজবেলার
মাঠের গাছটিতে
এমনই লাল বসন্ত ধরত কিনা !
ঋতু জানে, জানে তার প্রকাশ্য আর গোপন
প্রেমিকসকল
আমার দু-পা বেঁধে নিই #রণ-পা র পায়ে
তারপর দশ-পা র অভিমানে লাল
ফুটিয়ে তুলতে আপ্রাণ

restaurants

A Photographer Shoots Straight People To Show There Is Nothing Weird About Homosexuality

Section #377 of the Indian Penal Code makes
homosexuality illegal. It criminalizes sexual
activities which are ‘against the order of
nature’.
But what is so unnatural about having lovers
of the same sex?
When a guy and a girl are involved in
everyday activities, it doesn’t seem weird.
Because apparently it is not ‘against the
order of nature.’
In these photographs, the participants are
straight. But when they are involved in
intimate everyday activity, why does it
suddenly seem so repulsive to some people?
The concept of this project is that gender is
not related to intimacy or lust. Emotions
exist in their purest form without gender or
sex.
Sexuality or physicality merely gives
emotions a form. It has nothing to do with
sexual orientation or preference.
‘The photographs depict souls belonging to
bodies, not to any orientation.’
These photographs were taken by Aritra
Sarkar and exhibited at FTII, Pune. All
photographs were taken in absolute
minimum lighting conditions using a 600D
without any post production.

#Pandavani (literally meaning ‘songs of the Pandavas’),
is a lyrical folk ballad form that narrates the story of
the Pandavas.
Pandavani theatre usually has a lead
artist and some supporting singers and musicians.
There are two styles of narration in Pandavani -
Vedamati and #Kapalik. In the Vedamati style, the lead
artist narrates the story in a simple manner, sitting on
the floor throughout the performance. The Kapalik
style is livelier, with the narrator enacting the
incidents and characters.
