The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday agreed to re-examine its verdict on homosexuality and referred the matter to a five-judge Constitution bench. and with this the national debate on article 377 has once again being taken up at social platforms.
Like the couple in Chennai who got married on Christmas Eve last year with the blessings of a friend-turned-purohit and their buddy gang cheering them on. Their relatives and friends attended their wedding reception. It was like any other Bengali wedding. Except for the fact that the bride and the groom both were successful women. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
Suchandra Das is an established photographer, Sree Mukherjee works with a corporate house. Soon after marriage, the couple moved to Chennai where they have been living happily ever after.
Both the women believe that in a democratic country no one should tell a person whom to love.
They also add that Section 377 isn’t only about homosexuality. They say,”It also involves heterosexual couples if they practice anything that deviates from the process of making babies. So, this law is not about LGBT issues. It is about human rights.”
Sree said the couple have always lived life on their own terms.
she further adds, “It is our life. Hence, we were the ones vlog to decide our marriage. Some day I hope people will understand that it is not anyone else’s business to decide who a person wants to spend his or her life with,”
The Supreme Court’s decision has given them hope.
Suchandra says, “There is a way forward. We hope love wins. Laws are made to benefit mankind. But here, the law is wrong. Not just law, no one can govern our marriage,”
Their shifting to Chennai was a professional decision which turned out to be a blessing.
She says,” In Chennai, people are largely non-interfering. But in Kolkata, they used to stare at us,”
In Chennai, the landlord didn’t arch an eyebrow before renting out the flat to them. Sree’s office, too, has no issues with their marriage.
Obviously this couple have discovered that their happiness lies in sharing their lives with each other.
“I am not an in-your-face lesbian. I interact with people as a human being. They have also understood that sexuality is not a big deal,” Sree says. Suchandra travels all over India on work and doesn’t feel the need to shout out her sexual preference.
She also said, “We have been together for five years now. It is as normal or abnormal as heterosexuality .”
