This is Mumbai-based writer and comedian, Dhruv Deshpande.

On Monday, he wrote a post on Facebook about standing up to Indian parents and putting an end to bigotry in our society.

The post started off with a conversation that he and his mom had about homophobia and being gay when she asked him why he's not dating anyone.

He then went on to explain how we need to question our parents about their beliefs and correct them if they're wrong.

He ended the post by saying, "Look behind your computer screens at the wrinkled little lovable bigot you're living with. If you love them, tell them they're wrong. They're wrong a lot. Let's make the world a better place, one parent at a time."
