It has finally happened.
And I am very happy for the homosexual community. Years ago, as a teenager - I was introduced to homosexuality in the worst way possible. I was accosted by gays in parks, in elevators, on the road and even in railway reservation queues. Every homosexual I met, wanted to have me. So it was only natural for me to look at them with suspicion, disgust and even fear.
But of late my perception changed as I met normal, regular people like you and I who just happened to be gay. The more I spoke to them, I realized that there was nothing wrong with them - they just happened to be wired differently if I may put it that way. At the end of the day, it was just a matter of choice - like choosing butter chicken over pizza.
I am glad that my perception changed, because the ones I know today happen to be good friends. And I am glad that the powers to be today recognize their freedom of choice. A big 'up for the gay community, and a big 'up for the Indian judiciary. Now lets just hope that there are others around who change their perception about them, the way I changed.
