Yes we all are (at least us, the Queer folks & supporters) bouncing with joy over the recent Delhi High court verdict – in a way – legalizing Homosexuality.
But honestly I am not too sure about this.
In perhaps the first gay marriage after the Delhi High Court in a landmark judgment read down Article 377, a law that made even consensual sex between adult homosexuals a punishable offence, two 18-year-old men, brushing aside protests from family and jeers from society, went to a temple near their house in Chandigarh and “got hitched for life”.

The freedom to choose one’s own partner is a deserving right for all. But tell me isn’t the above a misuse, considering they are ONLY 18 years of age?
