1. People have reacted to the ruling with cautious optimism and hopefulness.

Not celebrating yet. But another day. And hope at the end of the rainbow...


YES. Thank you India's Supreme Court for this ray of hope! #Section377 #Sec377


We reiterate that silencing voices against #Sec377 won't stand the test of time. The tide has already turned, even if the state remains put.


#Sec377 I sincerely hope today's SC verdict is a landmark one celebrating individual freedom to live life on one's own terms.


Baby steps towards the rainbow at the end! :)


Constitution feels better already :)
