THE BOYFRIEND

By R.RAJ RAO

One Sunday morning in late 1992, Yudi, a forty something gay journalist, picks up a 19-year-old Dalit boy in the Churchgate loo. After hurried sex, he gets rid of the boy, afraid that he may be a hustler. There is nothing to set this brief enounter apart from numerous others, and Yudi returns to his bachelor’s flat and sex with strangers. Months pass. But when riots break out in Mumbai, Yudi finds himself worrying about the boy from Churchgate station. He is in love. Full of irreverent, dry humour and devoid of sentimentality, this novel brings us a tragi-comic love story from the jumbled up heart of Mumbai.
