We were smothered by the arbitrary and old-fangled law of Section 377. Today, this very moment, we break free. The Supreme Court has finally given the verdict in the country's favour, decriminalising gay sex and recognising that love is not a crime. India is painted in rainbow colours today and we're applauding this landmark judgement.
Look at the smiles on the faces of the people who fought this battle. They stood up for themselves and struggled for their right to love freely. Check out their pictures and see how the nation is celebrating this grand victory with them.
