Yes, homosexuality should not be legalised. India is not a western country and is not ready for western laws, yet.

Kirtivasan Ganesan June 03, 2011  

India should however implement sex laws from celibacy lines. It is morally correct. As India preached the world celibacy. It is practically correct. Because of population.

If you got money every degree comes to your feets like a dust.

I will read the blog you have mentioned.

But I am not propagating celibacy. I am saying the basis of a law. If not Sigmund Freud, then maybe on the basis of India's philosophy.

Kirtivasan Ganesan June 03, 2011  

If the government passes the homosexuality law I shall also protest.
