In separate but unanimous verdicts, a five-judge Constitution Bench struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as unconstitutional. Pixabay

By Vishvi Gupta

Almost 2.5 Billion people in India, took a huge sigh of relief as the Indian government, on the Sixth of September decriminalised and scrapped the article that condones homosexuality.


The law was first put in the constitution by the Britishers, under the Buggery Act of 1533 and it has continued to exist even after almost 400 years later. The law dictated and criminalised sexual activities ‘against the order of nature’. While the britishers themselves scrapped the law in early 1980’s, the Indian youth has been haunted by this law.

India has always been a diverse country, and a very gender fluid one. Only with the invasion of outsiders, did it matter who you lay with. India’s fluidity was always seen as a savage and dirty concept.It didnt matter whether you were a man, a woman or a trans. Love, in India always won.

It is still considered a huge win for, not just the youth, but everyone in India, to finally try and ‘normalise’ the homosexual instincts and not struggle on daily basis. The biggest problem that the youth has had to face is not figuring out their sexual orientation but rather the consequences they would hence have to face in the hands of the society and conservative elders.

Anyway, Acceptance is the first step towards the onset of change, and the government decriminalising homosexuality only makes the people more hopeful for the Indian youth to finally realise the potential that they have and take more steps that will make India, the great nation it deserves to be.

Details of the movie -- which is scheduled for release in February 2023 -- are being kept under wraps.

Bautista is currently going through a busy period, having starred in 'Dune' and Netflix's 'Army of the Dead' and recently finished production on 'Knives Out 2'.

He is currently working on the third 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie, and as well as 'Knock at the Cabin', he's also expected to shoot 'Dune 2' and is attached to star in and produce an action movie with Jason Momoa.

The 52-year-old star recently admitted he "almost broke down" when he was cast in 'Dune' because he was so keen to work with director Denis Villeneuve but didn't want to "capitalise" on his friendship with the filmmaker to land his role of Glossu Rabban.

Asked what attracted him to the project, he said: "For me, it was Denis. I really pursued this, because I was tracking 'Dune'. I kept asking my agent, "When auditions would become available? When are they going to release these roles?"

BitMart just experienced one of the biggest hacks in cryptocurrency history, with losses estimated at a whopping $196 million. Withdrawals have been frozen until further notice as the company undergoes security checks, but CEO Sheldon Xia has promised to compensate affected users out of pocket.
