By Sneha Shanti|Updated : January 4th, 2019

Hello Gradians,

We appreciate your efforts in the answer writing section. A lot many students have been attempting the questions ardently and comprehensively. We have been trying our best to evaluate your answers and give you feedback too. 

The question for this week’s challenge is from paper 1and 2 of the GS. Indian society has struggled against a lot of taboos and challenges one of which included the stigma against gay relationships. In this background, we bring to you the Supreme Court's decriminalising of section 377 of the Indian Penal Code and the question is as follows; 

Section 377 reflected the imposition of Victorian values and was never a reflection of Indian values. In this regard, the Supreme Court’s judgment has come out as a victory which will challenge the existing inequalities. Comment.

धारा 377 में विक्टोरियन मूल्यों को थोपा गया था और यह भारतीय मूल्यों का प्रतिबिंब नहीं था। इस संबंध में, सुप्रीम कोर्ट का फैसला एक जीत के रूप में सामने आया है जो मौजूदा असमानताओं को चुनौती देगा। टिप्पणी।

Happy writing!
