Chetan Bhagat says scrap Sec 377, but asks gays not to freak people out

Clearly, homosexuality is as natural as anything observed in nature and not an individual "lifestyle" choice. But a lot of us demand human conduct to be far above bestial standards. #HowThisWorks #India #Supreme Court #parliament #Animals #LGBT rights #Section 377 #Nature #criminalising homosexuality #Amazonian river dolphin
