My short story 'Dancing the Bihu' selected for 2014 New Asian Writing Short Story Anthology

My short story 'Dancing the Bihu' has been selected for the 2014 New Asian Writing Short Story Anthology. 
Summary of the story: This is the tale of a boy whose life is beyond the boundaries of masculinity and femininity. A gifted Bihu dancer, he dares to participate as a female dancer in a Bihu dance competition of his town. The way his dance is received by the audience is all about questioning what is natural and normal in a world that seeks to set order amidst chaos.
