Indian response to California law on same-sex marriage

New America Media editor Sandip Roy writes:

SAN FRANCISCO – When I left India for America, my aunts worried about who I might end up marrying. “I hope you’ll marry another Bengali,” an aunt told me. Over the years that relaxed to, “I hope she’s a Hindu, even if she’s not Bengali.” Then it became, “At least another Indian,” until finally we reached, “I hope you’ll get married to someone before we all die.”

She probably didn’t mean another man.

But now it might just happen...


Sandip Roy’s commentary, prompted by California law permitting same-sex marriages, was circulated by NAM under the heading “Be Gay, Be Anything You Want – Just Not Single”, can be accessed HERE.
