The Two Krishnas is a beautiful, sometimes joyful, yet heartbreaking exploration of love in all its manifestations. Here it is many days later, and I still find myself thinking about Ghalib Shiraz Dhalla's insights into the fierceness and frailty of the human heart. Oh, the things we will do for and in the name of love. Dhalla is a brilliant young writer, and his novel is exquisite, drenched in emotion, and timely.

Recent literature on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) expatriates has largely taken an employee perspective. Less attention has been devoted to organizational mechanisms supporting LGBT voice opportunities for global mobility. In this study, we use respondent data from 15 LGBT employees in combination with data from five global mobility managers to examine the role of Employee Resource Groups.

GAY: Used in some cultural settings to represent men who are attracted to men in a romantic, erotic and/or emotional sense. Not all men who engage in same-gender sexual behavior identify as gay, and as such this label should be used with caution. Sexual orientation varies and is not dependent on gender identity.

In the tradition of A Fine Balance and The Namesake, The Two Krishnas is a sensual and searing look at infidelity and the nature of desire and faith. At the center of the novel is Pooja Kapoor, a betrayed wife and mother who is forced to question her faith and marriage when she discovers her banker husband, Rahul, has fallen in love with a young, male Muslim illegal immigrant who happens to be their son's age. Faced with the potential of losing faith in Rahul, divine intervention, and family, she is forced to confront painful truths about the past and the duality in God and husband.
Comments to eBook The Two Krishnas (Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender and Intersex)
Alien
Reading this book made me feel like a child again. When he writes as the main character as a child, it is so vivid and real that it took me back. The story is touching and funny and beautifully written. I can't wait for the next novel.
Gold as Heart
I bought this book because it was for my book club group and while the writing is okay I found the book extremely not even a third of the way into Part II! I just think it could have been written better and the characters better defined and explored and the plot better written!

While Dhalla's freshman novel Ode to Lata remains an impressive debut effort it was without a doubt the leadoff to this emotionally pungent story of love and desire, passion, and secrets. Every character created by Dhalla in this mesmerizing and tragic novel plays a key element in the construction of the main story line between Pooja, the insufferably loyal wife whose greatest passion in life is to adulate her Rahul, a husband who is tormented by the counterfeit life he constructed out of societal fear and the life he undoubtedly was meant to live, and Ajay - the doomed son who will unfairly inherit the catastrophic consequences of his parents regrettable decisions. Dhalla's story is supported by a cast of familiar characters, elemental precursors, who are integrally woven into a tale of unalloyed love and betrayal. The stage is set in Los Angeles, Kenya, and India where Dhalla transports us with vivid imagery and invites us to savor the flavors and aromas of Indian recipes to then reward us after each delectable meal with savory Sufi poetry for dessert.

Dhalla is a driven prose poet uncompromising in his quest to touch and disturb our deepest most hidden emotions - those that some readers will undoubtedly discover and experience for the first time both whilst and after having read this raw but intimate novel.

Dhalla's sophomore effort is a marvelous literary achievement that will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions at every turn of the page. You will laugh, contemplate, weep, smile, gasp, and yes, you will hurt.

Amazing story. An eye opener and a wake up call. This book is about love that brings suffer and despair. Without love, life is supposed to be meaningless. This book is about love, sacrifices and a price that the people involved have to pay. It is about love in all its forms. Between husband and wife, father and son, mother and son, and lovers.
This beautifully written book remains entangled in attachment and discrimination. Love that is based on discrimination breeds prejudice and ultimate sacrifice.
The novel takes us to different countries and cultures but the message remains one. I think I am going to read it again. Beautifully written. I cannot wait for Dhalla's next book. 'Ode to Lata" was excellent. "The Two Krishnas-" beyond excellence.

The feelings, the conversations, the poems, the history, the characters and the locations all are perfectly woven together so magnificently.

I'll be frank and tell you guys that I was quite apprehensive about picking up this book. It is mainly because I have very little experience with LGBT literature. Oh of course I have read fiction novels where a supporting character was Gay or Lesbian, but never the protagonist. But so far my short experience in book blogging community has taught me to pick up new things with an open mind so as to enjoy and explore wider genres. So I agreed and man, am I glad now that I picked this one up!

The story explores mainly the life and journey of its protagonists - Pooja, Rahul and Atif. Rahul and Pooja hail from Kenya and they have a certain shared past before settling in L.A. The story begins at a point where Rahul is a well settled banker, Pooja is a homemaker managing her catering business from her own kitchen and Ajay is a typical teenager who is into gym and clubbing. While the disappearing sizzle of Rahul and Pooja's marital life has left Pooja a bit confused and lonely, Rahul on the other hand finds solace in Atif, an immigrant from Mumbai.

Unlike my usual taste for exploring the characters of a story first, I would like to talk about the plot first. This is undoubtedly one of the best plotline that I have come across in recent times. Don't get me wrong, it is not as complex as Da Vinci Code or as action packed as Bourne series or as mysterious as Sherlock Holmes novels. It is pretty simple and straightforward. But the different aspects of a common people's lives covered that gives this novel an exotic feel. For instance, a person struggling to find their true identity, or a person finally embracing his own sexuality, or a person's individual take on religion... The author managed to capture the different cultures and interlink them. The love scenes do not include any vulgarity but pure love and passion pours out of those pages. Human nature and raw emotions have been captured in a beautiful manner. There's a hint of everything in this page turner - drama, romance, deception and honesty.

Now, a plot like that needs strong characters that can do justice to it. And indeed, our protagonists play their roles to perfection. While Rahul plays the most dominant role and is the link to Pooja, and Atif, these other two people play as important an important role too. Rahul's past shaped him up and Pooja has been a true companion to him, but its Atif's influence that finally brought Rahul's character to its epitome. Atif's brings in with him his own experiences, his status of an illegal immigrant and his involvement with Rahul takes him to a place where as a reader I was on a roller coaster ride. At the same time, Pooja by no fault of her own, is lonely and her life is difficult on a totally different level. Then there is Greg - whose religious beliefs seem to be distancing him from his family. There's also Pooja's gossipy neighbor Sonali and a few other minor characters. Each true to life and easy to relate to.

Everything is brought together with great attention to detail and careful prose in order to make this book what it is - A Must Read!
