Inside Gayland

 
Rajesh Talwar (Author)
Synopsis Inside Gayland is a crazy satirical play on the law criminalizing homosexuality in India. The absurdity of this outdated law comes out forcefully when seen together with a similar law criminalizing heterosexuality in Gayland. The mind-searing trauma of gays and lesbians in India shunned by society and criminalized by the law can be better appreciated in the light of the pathetic plight of heterosexuals in Gayland. The intention of the playwright is aimed at creating awareness in society in general and the law makers in particular to the grossly unfair and unethical laws to which homosexuals in India are subjected to. Talwar’s Inside Gayland is a pointer to the long path that India has yet to traverse to guarantee basic rights to all its citizens.

Its interesting that a book of this kind can now be printed in India. Understand that the play has been staged in the UK as well as in some small productions in India. Deserves wider attention.
