Bollywood Gay- No1 Bestseller
'Your birth is a revolution. You chose to be born like this.'
Tired of the closet lifestyle, arranged marriages, (dis)honour(able) killings happening all around me, in the UK I decided to do something about it. Guys I knew or had dated were marrying someone of the opposite sex, fuelling up on drug induced sex orgies, or selling themselves on Grindr to find validation whilst suffocating with shame. The guilt and shame of being gay and South Asian.
Yes, for LGBTI people of colour, the story is still the same. Stuck in archaic times, families hold on to izaat (honour), societal pressure and the need to conform. So I turned to spirituality for solace. After a yoga teacher’s course, life coaching certificates and many gruelling silent meditation retreats later I felt like myself again. And that’s when I decided to write Bollywood Gay, a revolutionary, fiery and necessary bible for those wanting an authentic life.
The book has an activist slant, urging people first to sort their own issues before moving onto the bigger task of bringing LGBTI rights in South Asia. It is based on the Law of Attraction principles with each chapter finishing with an Action Sheet, intended to dive into the mind, to allow the reader to pierce through blockages, limiting beliefs, feelings, goals and desires.
Do you want the man of your dreams? Do you want to come out to your family? Do you want to live a happier life? All the Action sheets will spearhead you on to that effect.
The book aims to be positive, motivational, inspirational and eye opening. I want to remove the years of self-victimisation and external blame so you can reclaim your inner power. I want you to realise that you are the change and can do it in an instant with each and every thought, feeling and word you use.
The book is available in Paperback, Hardback, Kindle, Ebook and Audio:
The Hardback is great for those who are closeted and want to remove the outer pink jacket and want to read the book on a bus discreetly. The hardback cloth is plain blue with no writing on the spine, perfect to read it anonymously. It is also more durable and smaller in size to carry in your bag or purse. (It contains the central section on Coming out in 13 different languages: Arabic, Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu so you can show it to your parents when you are ready to come out).
The Paperback is slightly larger in size, perfect for filling in the Action Sheets and giving you room to map out your life. It is cheaper in price and thus a great bargain! (It contains the central section on Coming out in 13 different languages: Arabic, Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu so you can show it to your parents when you are ready to come out).
The Kindle and Ebook are great for reading on the go, on your tablet, phone or device discreetly and with ease. Being digital products they only have the coming out section in English and not in the 13 different languages. They are thus cheaper in price.
The Audio book is narrated by myself and orated in the same passion with which I wrote it. Again being a digital version, the coming out version is in English only. The Audio is great for those who don't like reading books, as you can have it playing in the background, on your phone or in the car with your friends.
