The structure of the post will remain the same in  sharing more about the gaylife in India throughout the interview of Parmesh Shahani, and for the rest the post will propose a lot of new Indian Hunks pictures which for some are gay themed.

INTERVIEW OF PARMESH SHAHANI BY H. JENKINS (Part II)

Question: How are debates about how we label sexual identities tied up with concerns about westernization and globalization?

Answer: Oh, they are very tied up. In fact, this is the main line of attack used whenever the discourse around homosexuality becomes too public, or too threatening. It seems that being gay is something that needs to be prevented from happening to the impressionable young men and women of the country! Right wing Hindu fundamentalist groups like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (National Brotherhood of Volunteers) are only too happy to jump on the “anti-Indian culture” bandwagon at any given time.

I write in the book about how the current Indian prime minister, Manmohan Singh was clearly flustered by a question about same sex marriages by a Canadian journalist and emphasized that these kinds of things were not appreciated in India. The lesbian themed movie Fire (1998) was deemed as an attack by “ultra westernized elite” on “the traditional set up” through “explicit lesbianism and other perversities” by the right-wing newspaper The Organizer.

Concerns about the negative impact of globalization are also expressed by certain members of the gay community. The English speaking upper middle classes have largely been the beneficiaries of globalization (jobs, travel, media consumption, internet usage, etc.), but for the non-gay identified homosexuals from the working classes, life might have become harder.

Globalization is also viewed as a positive prism to promote the decriminalization of homosexuality. This point of view wonders if it is right for a country that aspires to be part of global scene to victimize its minorities. As the journalist Karan Thapar writes in a recent Hindustan Times article, “by continuing to do so we make a mockery of our commitment to human rights leave aside all the Geneva conventions we have signed up to. So, for the sake of our democracy, this must be repealed.”

On a lighter note, some of my interviewees, especially the older ones, were very uncomfortable with what they felt were the Westernized aesthetics of the younger generation. One of them was particularly dismayed at the younger lot’s disdain for body hair and mustaches, something that he described as inherently Indian.
