1-Question of equality:- The time has come to undo the judicial wrong done to homosexual individuals in 2013, when the Supreme Court upheld the validity of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises gay sex. A reconsideration of the flawed verdict in Suresh Kumar Koushal is now in prospect. A three-judge Bench has opened up an opportunity to reconsider that verdict, which came to the disturbing conclusion that the LGBT community was just a “minuscule fraction” of the population and also ruled that those having sexual intercourse “against the order of nature” constituted a separate class on which the law could validly impose penal sanctions. 2- Avoiding roadkill:- The tragic death of Bajirao, one of India’s breeding tigers from the Bor reserve in Maharashtra, on a highway is a reminder that building unsuitable roads through wildlife habitats has a terrible cost. 3- We the censors:- We have a pretty healthy tradition now of almost anyone and everyone taking exception to a film. In that sense, we are all equal rights censors. There are some groups which don’t like a film because of some very genuine reasons. These could range from an incorrect portrayal of an ancestor (fictional or otherwise), of a politician (living or dead), a religious figure (god forbid), a professional occupation (lawyers) and so on.
