Tennis With No Love

I'm a fan of this cartoon from Hindustan Times, assuming I'm interpreting it correctly.  By reinstating Section 377, the law against gay sex, India's Supreme Court has hit the ball into Prime Minister  Manmohan Singh's court.  The ball--and chain--weighs heavily on India's gay population.  Note the Muslim, Hindu and Christian representatives' enthusiasm for this game.

I picked this illustration up from the Facebook page of Satrang - The Gay India.  Give it a look if you want to know more about LGBT life in the world's second most populous country. Yes, India has over 1.2 billion people.  Just think, statistically, how many of them must be gay.  They won't be playing the role of ball boy forever.
