Someone called Gandhi "gay and bisexual" or something like that in a book. Needless to say, the book is now being banned in every state in India, even without anyone having read the book.
Every chief minister in India is bending over backwards (backwards, mind you) to defend the honour of the Father of the Nation.
But does it really matter??
If I were Sunil Gavaskar, I probably would have said that Gandhi couldn't have been gay, because only the English are gay and definitely not bisexual as only Aussies are bisexual, but since I am not, all I will say is I really don't care.
Gandhi (Mohandas, not Indira, btw) is the greatest individual to have existed in the 20th century.
He is the greatest because he resisted the temptation to retaliate, instead insisted on changing himself.
He is the greatest because his method of "regime change" cost a few trillion dollars less than George Bush or Barack Obama's methods, for a lot lesser body count.
The reason he is respected has nothing to do with his sexuality. Call him gay, bisexual, heck call him a cross-dresser for all I care.
If Gandhi were alive, he wouldn't have asked for a ban.
Now if someone were to say that he was an MI5 agent (gay, straight or otherwise) I'd be cross if it is proven.
Cross about a cross dressing double crosser.
