Devdutt Pattanaik hails Supreme Court verdict, cautions against "loveless marriages"

Noted mythologist-writer Devdutt Pattanaik has hailed the landmark Supreme Court verdict on Thursday that decriminalised homosexuality between consenting adults and hoped that the judgement will be the beginning of a larger change.

"I think this is a wonderful moment in Indian history. India has finally acknowledged that it is okay to be different. It is an opportunity for us to open ourselves to our friends who are queer and have genuine conversations about feelings that we generally don't talk of," said Mr Pattanaik, who is known for his interpretations of ancient Indian scriptures.
