Gay Topic Discussion with Elders in India

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

I was reading a book called ‘The Secret’ (by Rhonda Byrne) to my mother, when this incident happened.

In one of the examples, the author narrates about a gay guy who was expressing negative thoughts and how the author suggested this person to think positive, etc etc. As many of you know, it is very difficult to talk about certain topics such as gay etc to elders in India – leave alone trying to use such examples when trying to communicate as an example of a good incident.

I tried a variation by replacing the word ‘gay’ with ‘handicapped’ (no offense meant to gays around the world as I truly respect their own opinions). It was quite difficult as the paragraph went along and I had to pay special attention to some sentences such as ‘they dont mock you anymore at office’.
