A landmark decision came out yesterday – homosexuality is no longer a crime in India! A decision that was a long time coming. It is such a taboo in India, that even your closest friend wouldn’t have told you if they were gay. But having said that, the decision has created a furor among the religious clerics of all religions. My only hope and wish is that the political body (who btw is divided on the issue too) not hamper the progress made. I always feel the culture of the country will be enriched now more than ever.
A big step in the right direction, India truly will move ahead if her people open up, broaden their minds and follow their own age old dictum of tolerance to all.
