    Not to say there are no gay men in India but this identity is sort of a luxury that doesn't really extend beyond the educated upper classes. The majority of men who have sex with men don't see themselves as gay or even homosexual. I remember one conversation I had with a man in this park. He was a strapping fellow, about 6'4". If I had seen him on the street I would never have thought, 'There is a man who has sex with men.' I was very naive then. I made the mistake of asking him if he was samalaingik (homosexual). He stood up from the bench and confronted me. 'Do you think I'm a chakka (fag)?' he said indignantly. 'Don't I look like a mard (man) to you? I have just fathered my first son--isn't that enough proof of my manhood?' 'Most definitely,' I said, 'but yet you come here to have sex with these boys.' He looked genuinely perplexed. 'So?' he said, 'what's wrong with that?' A mard, he explained, is a taker. By contrast, someone who is taken is a na-mard. Their gender is irrelevant. To him, sex with a man is the same as with a woman.
