Let Them Bloom !
I never wanted to write an article on homosexuality, but the historic gay parade in Delhi, India propelled me to express my thoughts through my blog. The parade, where fashion celebrity like Manish Arora joined, was held beyond any one's imagination. At the same time, such kind of parades were also orgainsed across the world including one in Sofia, Bulgaria. But unlike Bulgaria, Delhi parade did not witness any kind of violence. But the only question that remains to be answered is whether there be a ban on gay, lesbian, bisexuals and transgender in our country? It is of my opinion that there should not be any kind of ban on them, despite the fact that homosexual relations are legally considered as a crime in India under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
In a democratic country like India everybody has the right to express their liberty and it is our duty to give the power of liberty and freedom to everyone. In many countries, people have actually realized that there is a place for homosexuality in the society, though many governments still oppose gay marriages. However, in our country it is difficult to convince the people that gay people are not from Mars. Believe it or not, they were in the early 20th century, and now they are everywhere in the world. Feel free to put any comments if you strongly feel towards the issue.
