Heart Burn.

Two Indian women set themselves ablaze this weekend after their families and husbands tried to put an end to what relatives referred to as their “unusual relationship,” by which they mean lesbian love. “The incident came to light on Saturday morning when the family members noticed thick smoke emanating from the house, where the women stayed the previous night. They peeped through the window and were shocked to see the bodies lying as if they had died hugging each other.” [Times of India]

    Horrible. Really, truly, horrible.

    May they rest in peace.

    This is a tragedy! It is also reminiscent of the movie of an Indian lesbian love story called “Fire”.

    That’s exactly what I thought of as I read it, _Fire_… such an amazing movie. I dunno if it was based on anything (you know, other than the story told in the movie), but it pains me to see it in real life.

    What is sad is that India was quite sexually open until the British arrived. If anyone owns the Kama Sutra, thay would know.
