It is no longer a crime for a man to wear pink.
“Tu bhi gay mere sang gaye saara jahan gayeja gayeja gayeja”….
India finally made another tryst, that too peeche se angootha laga ke, with its destiny, not in a full measure but substantially with the decriminalization of homosexuality.
History will remember this not only as the occasion when Celina Jaitley, with her blogs on iTimes, galvanized the nation and unintentionally her career with her espousal of the “gay cause” [Check out this video where Celina says everyone who has helped her to become what she is today is gay] but also when all religions in India provided an unified front. Christian, Muslim and Hindu religious figures put aside all their differences relating to who will go to heaven and who to hell and came together to express their disgust for this love of man for man (and for woman for woman), their combined sentiment appropriately summarized by The Great Yoga guru: “Homosexuals are sick people, they should be sent to hospitals for treatment“, (a precursor hopefully to his new CD “Samalinga-itya se mukti” where he will show how breathing in and out will cure you of asthma, diabetes and the desire to peek into the neighboring cubicle at an urinal).
However I have a question. While we are busy protecting the rights of our sexual minorities, have people forgotten those of the sexual majorities?
Who is to protest the criminalization of heterosexual activity, especially the kind that is engaged with oneself in a darkened room with a computer on, as the government of India in its wisdom bans the website Savitabhabhi?
Will all those cool and hep youngsters who came out onto the streets for same-sex couples, be willing to join a messiah in a “danda pakarke Danda March” in protest against the assault on our rishta with the most famous Bhabhi ever?
Will some celebrity in the fashion of Celina Jetley take up the “Save Savitha” cause —-Sherlyn Chopra are you listening?
Will the minority appeasing ruling classes tell us why oh why Savita Bhabhi, a patriot who has given her body for the national interest in one of her episodes, showed us that bra salesmen are people too and over the past year provided a depressed country ten seconds of release every night, is considered such a huge threat to the national security that she should be banned?
Tell me why do jholla-wallahs and the “socially conscious” candle-light people care for the human rights of terrorists but not for ours—the silent heterosexual majority?
I am waiting for the answer.
