    Good on them for making this sensible choice, I hope others see sense and follow suit.

    What a lovely statement Bharat Lukka has made. Someone who really gets what equality is all about. Well done and thank you.

  5. A wonderfully exotic venue in which to get CPed (and, hopefully, married)! My partner and I would certainly be up for it! Hindi music, flower round the neck, and all!

  6. Good to see the Hindus are starting tojoin the Liberal & Reform Jews, the Quakers, the Unitarians & the Pagans on the equal marriage stance

  7. This is excellent news of Hindus overcoming their social conservatism. There is no space for homophobia in Hinduism, a belief system that accommodates cross-dressing, gender-transgressing, same-sex loving Gods and saints.

  8. An excellent development, I’m impressed.

    The brother of a friend of mine (who is Jewish) had a lavish wedding here to his Indian-born spouse and, rather to everyone’s surprise, the Indian side protested that they’d missed out and a second (and larger) celebration had to be done. The couple is now an accepted fixture on the apprently endless wedding circuit in that British-Indian group.

  9. Wonderful news. It’s so nice to read something like this for a change. :)
