The DO-STUNNER (~dostana~) Effect


Feels good to be blogging again in a span of just a day ... a record of sorts which I dont mind and to you it does not matter.

Art imitates life and life imitates art ... 20 yrs back most people ( atleast in India ) were almost ignorant about the existence of homosexuals and considered such individuals as perverted and abnormal.However the fact that people do not accept homosexuality does not stop nature from manufacturing them . Indian spiritual texts never have the clear cut segregation of the genders which is a creation of the western world. Every man has feminine qualities to an extent(which is variable!) and the same holds true for every woman.

Recently , two movies Dostana and Fashion had heavy gay characterisation throwing light on the fact that homosexuality is no horror but a way of life and is merely another sexual orientation .

Perhaps this had to happen in this Big Bang fashion through the medium of cinema because in modern India homosexuals have been marginalized and have been forced to live the 'so-called' NORMAL life of having families,rearing kids and the like.

Similarly,there is a psychiatric treatment to alter the sexual orientation of children who exhibit affinity towards the same gender . The process followed is to show the child pictures of the opposite sex and reward the child for showing attraction . This is really a criminal act because it is an attempt to suppress a human's basic sexual nature and impose an artificial sexuality just for the sake of social acceptance.

'Live and let live ' has always been the spirit of India since time immemorial and maybe no more wil it be uncool for gay men to say " aadmi hoon aadmi se pyar karta hoon" ;)

God Bless !
