A Kiss is Just a Kiss (Except in India where it is A Political Protest for Secularism)

I had a long shift yesterday. A 36 hour one. But when I came back, one thing ruined my day.

I had pre-ordered Dragon Age Inquisition. I loved the first, I thought the second was ham fisted but was looking forward to the third where we allegedly were returning to form. And then I learnt that it won’t be distributed in India.

You see? I cannot purchase Dragon Age Inquisition in India because of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Dragon Age has homosexual characters and they aren’t being set on fire for being abominations according to a Victorian Mindset adopted by Indians.

Age of Kali – This Morning in Chennai

This morning at Chennai Central Train Station there was a terror attack.

So far one woman died and 14 people are injured.

Two are critical.

I was not at the train station at the time, but it is on my normal route when I travel out for village work. Today is May Day, so I took a day off to read and get ready for exams.

So far no one knows who did it apart from the usual…. Epic Fucklords.

The young lady who died is just 24.
