You must be wondering what I am talking about all of a sudden straight from love affairs now I am trying my hand at the legal affairs of our country. Well I’m sure many of us are aware of this act passed by the honorable British government in the year 1863 which says……
“Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with [imprisonment for life], or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
Explanation. -Penetration is sufficient to constitute the carnal intercourse necessary to the offence described in this section.”
Going by this law the Homosexuals are subject to the above penalty because unfortunately in India we cannot have our own sexual preferences and if we have them we are penalized for that and hey don’t you forget that India is a democratic country where we have all kinds of rights but our sexual rights and if you are a homosexual in India then god help you!!!!!
But as far as my knowledge and many research goes there are millions of “heterosexuals” who indulge in anal sex on a regular basis but then we never hear that they have been heavily penalized even to the extent of death for that….well if that would be the case then I’m sure most of us would have been dead or in prison by now….
India before the invasion of our demi gods, the Britishers, had vy liberated idea about sex, and come on we all know about the Khajuraho temples, The Kama Sutra (check out the one at crosswords), The Manuskriti, The Upanishads; all of these texts have the mention and glad acceptance of homosexuals but then thanks to the British government they were really good with their manipulating powers. But the irony lies here that in 2005, December same sex marriage has been legalized in the United Kingdom. So the law makers have amended the law but the liberal ones on whom the law had been imposed have internalized it now.
This issue has stirred me because this was the topic of my Public Relation presentation and after getting to know about all this I seriously feel that its high time we should do something. There are so many people I know who are homosexuals and its their way of life, they are biologically this way and they cannot help that. We cannot penalize them for that, this is heights of brutality and the I think educated people like us should do something about it but the saddest part is that the so called “straight” people like us only corner them when it comes to personal experience or confrontation. We ridicule them, mock them, laugh about them and also the word “GAY” is a very frequently used slang for the men folks “ Hey wearing a pink shirt is so gay” statements like this can be heard quite often these days. But I think with time we all have learnt to accept a lot of unjustified things in this world and this is something which is completely justified and its about many peoples life, if not love them we shouldn’t condemn them as well. They are normal people like us just that they prefer their same sex when it comes to love and making out, ( if that helps).
