'Legally Gay' in India !

Today Indian society took a giant leap forward. The Delhi High Court ruled today in favor of decriminalizing the gay sex between consenting adults. This is an extremely bold ruling considering the nature of Indian society and prevailing orthodoxy of Indian culture.

I call this the victory of 'Modern India'. The rational side of the Indian society won this long and hard fought battle. Not surprisingly, all religious leaders came out, bashing the high court's decision.
Ironically, for them, it is OK to kill, burn, rape, plunder in the name of religion. But it is not OK to have a loving relationship between two consenting adults who happen to be of the same gender. I would just like to tell them one thing. It is the victory of love over hate.
