In a historic judgement, the Supreme Court of India partially struck down Section 377, thereby decriminalising consensual adult gay sex. The verdict by the Apex court was welcomed by millions across the country. With this ruling, India has now joined the list of countries where homosexuality is not a crime.
Delivering the landmark judgment, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, said: "I am what I am. So take me as I am."
