Homosexuality is not a 'tendency' it's something you are born as and is absolutely NORMAL. To tell someone you can change is irresponsible.— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) November 14, 2017

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's words at the lecture, as per a scroll.in report, were: "If you stand up, nobody can insult you, but if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better. This is your tendency now...just acknowledge it, accept it, and know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I've seen many men who were gay later turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal, who are called straight people, end up being gay later in life."
