In India we treat men walking hand in hand in public as a normal event in spite of the ‘corrupting’, ‘mind-corroding’ influence of the West as a segment of our populace would put it. Even so, it gave me pause to gaze fixed in freeze frame, and once the thaw acted, to think about two men at a public event expressing to each other many times, in multiple and very eloquent ways, their knowledge of the existence of such a thing as a spine in their respective bodies. All very innocent and in rapt wonder. “Look at this…can you feel it? Yes? Yes?” “Oooh! You got one too?”
Man, I tell you…THEY are here amongst us and THEY look just like us.
