The air I breathe, is legal and free

For the many in our society who are denied the basic human rights. the right to breathe, the right to feel free, Sep 6th 2018 was a day when the story lines changed forever, both for him and her. It wasn’t going down history or herstory, it was simply glory and time to shine, time to breathe in peace and time to live life respectfully

What went wrong all these years? If you research our rich Indian traditions and cultures, you will find that there was much respect for this community

The Khajuraho temples famous for their erotic sculptures, contain several depictions of homosexual activity. Historians have long argued that pre-colonial Indian society did not criminalise same-sex relationships, nor did it view such relations as immoral or sinful. Transgender individuals held high positions in courts of Mughal rulers in the 16th and 17th centuries. Hinduism, India’s largest religion, has  traditionally portrayed homosexuality as natural and joyful, though some Hindu texts do contain injunctions against homosexuality. Modern societal homophobia was introduced to India by the European colonizers and the subsequent enactment of Section 377 by the British, which stood for more than 70 years after Indian Independence

Then what changed over the years … were we influenced by the westernizers .. did their thoughts and cultures take precedence over ours… or did we let them control the domian of our minds

Well, that is part of a bygone era

for those who have experienced love unconditionally, bless you

and for those who have felt conditional love – there is room to make it better

and for the many who struggled only to legalize their love, breathe now as the air is lega and free. 

Section 377 abolished thanks so a few brave souls whose petition was accepted by the Supreme court. India is changing 

 

love is love and the colours of the rainbow add to its grandeur

  1. This is such a big change for all of the indians out there. But, it is upsetting that even after that many indians remain with negatives thoughts about homosexuality. Thanks for writing this.
