TranSolitude

by Rohan Susha Mathews

Shadowing his eyelids,
Opened he a new chapter in her life.
Loaning his sister’s dress,
Into the world of masks, he walked as herself with pride.
Teased and tortured at every turn,
Up she held her bearded chin.
Dorned in disgrace and rejection she waited inside him;
Eager to be free one day.


About the Author


Rohan Susha Mathews

Rōhan Sushā Mathews is a 21-year-old student of engineering in Dhārwad. Born into a conservative Syrian Christian family Rōhan has always faced troubles dealing with evident traits of femininity within him. During his short tenure at the Madrās Christian College, he has been subjected to severe pressure from most of the student community who chose to rather live in monolithic times. Beyond all of this, Rōhan is someone who takes great interest in understanding different cultures, traditions, and languages on deeper aspect. He calls feeding the hungry his passion and cooking his sacred art. He is a believer but has broken the binding chains of limited theology that churches smothered him with. He keeps searching for better understanding of religious texts with respect to their context and circumstances rather than blind faith.
