Glee for India

The 150-year-old section 377 of India's penal code, introduced when the British ruled the subcontinent, described homosexual intercourse as "carnal intercourse against the order of nature" and imposed a 10-year jail term for offenders.

The Delhi High Court yesterday declared the laws a violation of "fundamental rights" and unconstitutional.
