gays of India


The Gays of India

In India gay people can´t get married and that is sad for those who think
a ring on a finger is enough to utter love and loyalty. Liberal as I´m I ought
to sign letters an express my outrage against the Indian government,
but my heart is not in this battle of hysterical expression of democracy.
There many inequalities, say, the plight of the Palestinians and now
the dilemma of Negev Bedouins who soon will find themselves flattened
by this juggernaut of harsh, unthinking quest for security and land; it
will not stop, pause or think of a peaceful alternative. How to stop this blitz,
this amoral action before it destroys both perpetrators and victims
in an orgy of bloodletting. Then there is Syria, this intractable problem
this can cast us into a catastrophic null point when someone will use
nuclear weapon they profess not to have, in the name of feverish existential
survival. So the gays of India can´t for now get married, what can I say?
Carry on fighting for your right, but do not fall into the trap to think the rest
of the world thinks your problem is of outmost importance.
