A Handbook For My Lover. Rosalyn D'Mello.
A Handbook For My Lover. Rosalyn D'Mello.
I was, however, young enough to know what it felt like to hand my heart on a platter to someone who claimed to want it, and then have it returned to me, used and half-discarded, faded and dog-eared.
In Three Words: Sensuous. Reflective. Brave
Why Should You Read It: If you have been wondering how can erotica be gorgeously written. This book is an exquisite example of experimental literary text (not because it is ground-breaking, but only because we seem to love to box literature in suffocating boxes and genres.) Having left herself vulnerable to the prying eyes of the world, Rosalyn D'Mello has used her words beautifully to pen this bold memoir.
Beyond the Book: The book has a generous sprinkling of references from other books and texts. You can see it as a handbook not just for her lover, if you want to.

Word Wise
n. the impossibility of comprehending the universe; the belief that human knowledge can never have true certainty
@greenrains. A storyteller (and gatherer) and teacher, Himani is one of the most generous souls I’ve ever known. Her deep insights about life, love, and everything in between—dispensed amidst a generous splattering of existential angst—are a treat to the senses. Follow her if you want a dose of compassion and kindness on your timeline.
Dil Bepervah - Ankur Tewari & Prateek Kuhad. If there’s a more beautiful assertion for following your heart than this song, you should tell me about it. Listen to it for an instant boost to your cheerfulness. It will linger in your heart for hours, if not days.
Till next time…
With warmth and gratitude
