Celebrating Section 377 with yourself

What’s the big deal about Section 377? The recent ruling on Section 377 has been a very important landmark in many aspects, a very important one being about love. At Enrich Salons, our philosophy being Love Begins With You, we relate to this ruling in a big way. Our take on it being, now we are free to love ourselves first.

This statement means the mentality of people has to change in order to break the social pressure of fitting into a ‘mould’. A combined acceptance of this will make this change happen, and every individual working towards it is going to make an impact. To start with, that individual should be you, by accepting yourself, and being the unique you.   When the liberty of a person is smothered under some vague stipulation that it is against the order of nature, then the fundamental right of one’s liberty...
