Be What You Desire, Not What You Are Expected To BE!

Sanjoy Nag’s Memories in March is a 2010 Indian drama film. The film stars Deepti Naval, Rituparno Ghosh and Raima Sen. The film is the effective exploration of a situation wherein a bereaved mother comes to terms with her late son’s sexual identity. The release date was 1st April 2011.

Rituparno Ghosh apart from being a remarkable Indian film director, actor, writer and lyrist was a queer activist. Ghosh enacted the boyfriend who gradually encourages the mother to reach epiphany. Because of Ornob’s constant support, she gradually accepted her son’s sexual preference. As fate would have it she even found a friend and son in Ornub Mitra, the lover of her son.

Rituparno Ghosh’s fight

The movie depicts love, hate, fight and pain of the LGBTQ community as well as the internal fight. The community for ages not only fought for their love in the society but also fought for their love and choices in their own house, family. Each day the fight gets tougher leading them to live with the choices their society and family members make for them. Love has always been a difficult emotion to grasp. The one who tell us to love all belittles us for loving someone who is of the same gender. The conflict of human heart to accept and fondle the love of a queer is dark.

From 1861 to 2018, India fought every battle and accepted all the criticism, hatred and assault. In the year 1861, the Indian Penal Code under British rule introduced a much awaited and a celebrated law—Modelled on the Buggery Act of 1533, it makes sexual activities “against the order of nature” illegal.

Finally, on 6 September 2018, India saw the Supreme Court of India ruling out the application of Section 377 to consensual homosexual sex between adults was unconstitutional, “irrational, indefensible and manifestly arbitrary,” but that Section 377 remains in force relating to sex with minors, non-consensual sexual acts, and bestiality. Since 2018, the fight became legalized, but it did not end. Many still fights the society and family trauma. The torment is so painful and disturbing that they distaste the social gathering.

Literature fights back!
