Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar is a Rising Flame campaign organised around valentine's day in 2020 and 2021. It is a series of essays on love, intimacy, relationships and disability in collaboration with mainstream spaces. Personal stories about dating, crushes, rejection, heartbreak, expectations from partners or of partners and building own worlds of romance and pleasures. Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar is an effort to amplify voices of disabled women; narratives on love that seldom are seen in mainstream discussions on romance. To download the book with these stories, click here.
