Ahmedabad : Benhur Samson, an NRI settled in the US has started a matrimony website for homosexuals to find their life partners in India.

He works in the field of medical tourism and helps gay couples have children through surrogacy. He decided to start the service arrangegaymarriage.Com for homosexuals to get life partners after requests from his clients, after, Obama declared marriage equality rights.

His website has already got about 250 requests from gays, mostly Indians, and the agency has helped around 29 couples to get married till now.

The idea of the website came up because of the several of his gay clients, who were opting for surrogacy services, were visiting India to get their babies where they’d find partners and would like to stay together. After the clients get enrolled, the portal gives them a one year time and promises them to find them a suitable partner within that time frame.

The portal has been doing this since last eight years and has been successful in making around 29 gay couples tie the knot.(inputs from agencies)

    Yes, many will find hope in this story and will think that one is stepping away from the culture of homophobia. Though it is need to be noticed that the term ‘arranged’ and ‘marriage’ which have applied to the heterosexual couples for centuries had bring on the surface hordes of the internal prejudices like casteism and discrimination based on religion and ethnic communities, not to mention the skin color; another of the ‘ideal type’.

India is a very attractive market with high brand recognition for a computer hardware producer like HP, said HP Inc’s President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Tian Chong Ng.

The Asia Pacific region — in which India is a key focus area — has been the fastest growing for HP and provided 16 per cent revenue growth last year.

In Q1 of FY2019 it registered 8 per cent growth year-on-year, said Ng in the course of the HP Reinvent 2019 conference, the company’s largest global partner event.

One reason for that is — India – and also the Asia Pacific region — tick marks on demographics trends which provide clear wins for HP: rapid urbanisation and more millennials are joining the work force.

While HP is very positive on India and recognises its potential, there are no plans yet for setting up a manufacturing base in India. Ng said it already has a manufacturing base in China apart from others in Vietnam, Thailand and Japan.

“There is an existing ecosystem in China and we don’t have plans for setting up a manufacturing base in India, he said.

One focus area is the 3D printer, which offers HP great opportunity. Construction and automotive sectors are the focus areas here. Meanwhile, an MoU has been signed with the Andhra Pradesh government.

“To be successful in India demands that we understand it,” he said.

HP is also pushing gaming in a big way. However, this has not led to any thinking for manufacturing mobile phones in India, despite the high number of gamers in the country spurred by affordable android phones and cheap data.

“Our strength is the PC business and we offer a whole family of products in that space,” Ng said. (IANS)
