The Historic judgement by Delhi High Court bites Dust as the Superior Supreme Court restores Section 377 … sighhh …
The entire nation was taken by surprise and the LGBT community caught off guard when on 11th December the Supreme Court Verdict came… Totally uncalled for!!! It was truly a major setback to Human Rights!!! Sure enough there was a nationwide uproar amongst the LGBT personnels and Social Activists… Social, Visual and Print media sprang in support for the cause… but for now… According to the law… People indulging in Same Sex is a “CRIMINAL”. How ridiculous and stupid that sounds right!?!?!?!
One of my friends had rightly quoted… Some Governments progress… some remain stagnant… but India is moving backwards… be it the corruption… be it the innumerous crimes and rapes… be it the value of the effin Rupee… !!! Now one more feather added to the Cap!!! Bye Bye Freedom of Choice… Bye Bye Democracy… you may Rest in Peace now!!! There’s hardly anything that I can write or say that has not yet been written or said … The Government should be sensible enough to understand that by just imposing a law …. the gay community is not gonna divert themselves towards celibacy … get real … This is gonna result in nothing but harassment of the LGBT crowd by corrupt Cops and illiterate Public … sad indeed!!!
Though the nation is buzzing now with a sense of retaliation but if no measures are taken on an immediate basis then its just a matter of time when the movement will come to a halt… Truth be told… if a hero like Anna Hazare couldn’t achieve much here… then I really have no hopes from this Country… India… uncool man… uncool!!! I wouldn’t be totally surprised if tomorrow the Government makes it compulsory for all women to wear Saree!!! They have hinted that any which ways by crying out loud that rapes happen when women wear short clothes!!! India… you Disgust me!!!
Anywho… if someone had shown this video to those two judges who made the verdict then perhaps… the judgement would have been different… hahaha I kid you not… but those stone hearted guys would’ve come to their conclusion either ways…
I absolutely love and adore the song and the video is just too emotional to handle… Its like a 7 mins version of Brokeback Mountain… The lyrics are genuine… and forces you to think… The song was made by Macklemore in support of legalizing Same-Sex marriage in the USA… and guess what… While Same Sex Marriage is now legal in America… back here in India even the Sex is unacceptable… Major Irony or what!?!?! Not really right!!!
My two favorite parts of the songs are :
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it
When kids are walking ’round the hallway plagued by pain in their heart
A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all
But it’s a damn good place to start
No law is gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever God you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip away the fear
Underneath it’s all the same love
The song is up for Grammy for Song of the year !!! I hope it wins (Only because there’s no Rihanna Song Nominated for this category 😛 ) !!!
Well whether the LGBT community in India will get Justice or not is for the time to tell… Every person has the right to live their lives on their own terms… whether plus or minus the support by government… the gay individuals will continue to live their lives… But now in a much Closeted way… 😦 India… I loathe you…
