I Style! – P for Parmesh, P for Porn Star

I promised a new section and here it is! Of note, I haven’t received that many contributions as yet (*disapproving look at readers*). Arre…you expect me to do all the work or what? πŸ‘Ώ

Alright, alright I will! So here we go and welcome to a a new episode of I Style! Don’t you just lurrrrrrve the things people think up?

Isn’t he hot? Isn’t he cool? πŸ˜€

Meet Parmesh Shahani, one-time crush, now that-ubercool-stud-I-know. Parmesh is the author of GayBombay:Globalization, Love and (Be)Longing in Contemporary India. (*sob* Why’re all the great men gay?), owner of rockstar attitude and the wearer of the kind of attire that gives I Style! its raison d’etre.

Parmesh has the attitude and you can see he wears it as well! (Do I get some brownie points for claiming an acquaintance with him?)

Okay now stop drooling people…I promise you’ll see Parmesh here again!

    Holy Mother of Christ! Is this the same Parmesh Shahani who was involved with freshlimesoda.com? He studied at the Indian School in Bahrain for some time. My brother and he were pretty good friends. He wasn’t gay then … at least I don’t think he was.

    I wonder why certain people are so nostalgic abt proclaiming their sexual priorities akin to a clarion call given. I am doubly sure that a vast majoirty of readers only pay heed to the author’s professional achievements n objectives rather than his/her sexual priorities!

    @ Sakshi: We’re a rock band with you as the lead singer!

    @ SwB: Kerrrecktt! I’m sure he was gay then too since it’s not exactly a taste you develop suddenly. He was just quieter about it. Read the book.

    @ anand: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    @ Precious: One day at a time, a few posts at a time. I’m not going anywhere. πŸ™‚

    @ Lekhni: Done!

    @ DC: I’ll remind him to read this post and its comments for the fan following that seems to be emerging!
