India Decriminalizes Homosexuality; Strikes Down Colonial-Era Law

NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s supreme court on Thursday struck down a colonial-era law that made gay sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a landmark victory for gay rights that one judge said would “pave the way for a better future.” The 1861 law, a relic of Victorian England that hung on long after the end of British colonialism, was a weapon used to discriminate against India’s gay community, the judges ruled in a unanimous decision. “Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar o...

The real meaning of ‘riding-a-wave’ as a startup: Lessons from a gruesome year

It is strange that 2017 was one of the worst year for many people around me. I can understand that it was bad for many businesses due to impact of de-monetization and GST rollout. However it was also bad on personal front for many. The only explanation seems to be that since it was one of the worst years for me professionally, hence I’m noticing many people around me in similar situation. Me and my colleagues worked our ass off and I was under immense stress most of the year. However retrospecti...

Still Chuckling After All These Years

Parsi revue Laughter in the House 2 is a cornucopia of guilty pleasures One would perhaps not have imagined the Bee Gees song ‘Stayin’ Alive’ to be as felicitous to the boulevards of Ballard Estate, as it may have been to surviving in the rough streets of New York in 1977.

A lifetime can be akin to a big bad city, the lyrics seem to allude, pointing to the never-say-die tenacity of d...
