Not [email protected]@The article ‘In law, gay is happy no more’ by Aditi Tandon (Sunday Tribune, Dec 15) is about LGBT rights, something new for many sections of our society who are not even fully aware about the nature of their own. It is a privilege to be in human form. It offers an opportunity to evolve at a higher pace. Being ‘unnatural’ obstructs the blossoming of an individual. The individual may not be able to understand its implications, but society does. One must appreciate Section 377 of the IPC. Society has a responsibility to preserve and protect its ‘normal’ members through law. It is not against ‘privacy’ and ‘dignity’ of any individual, but it has to bear the brunt when acts done in privacy have adverse societal repercussions. LGBT issue deserves sensitive handling, but abolishing this Section is not the answer. @@Jagvinder Singh Brar, [email protected]@@@[email protected]@Restoring the validity of Section 377 is commendable. A spur in LGBT relationships is bound to decrease the natural bonding and attraction for the opposite sex.

We have to identify the strengths and opportunities as Asians. At the same time we should enhance concentration with control on weaknesses and threats from time to time. Together, India and Pakistan have the potential to do wonders, which calls for strategic partnership and trust. We can create a win-win situation by joining hands.

We cannot be complacent, thinking we have had only one submarine mishap while other countries had more. We need to take necessary steps to safeguard our men and sophisticated machines. A thorough investigation is required so remedial measures can be taken. Offshore officials and ministers should refrain from making irresponsible comments. The aim should be to keep up the morale of the armed forces and have faith in the force defending our waters. @@GS Mann, Sundernagar
