policy that cultivates the chosen ones from the moment they are out of diapers feels the country’s air rifle shooting coach Li Jie an Olympic and a World Championship silver medalist The 37-year-old Li who clinched silver at the 2004 Athens Games is here with the Chinese contingent for the ongoing International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup China who had toppled United States from the top at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing proved that the outing at home wasn’t a fluke with another very successful showing at London four years later In most quadrennial sporting events in recent years the People’s Republic of China has been among the top two normally “China is strong because there is a very sound national scheme under which the government provides the greatest support for the development of sports and sportspersons and this applies to shooting as well” Li told PTI on the sidelines of the tournament at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range “As per the scheme at first the athlete has to show a great level of passion and then if he can back that with talent it’s done If this criterion is met the government supports the athlete from a very very young age” Li said Over the last two-three decades China has produced some of the finest athletes and Li believed the role played by these legends or “leaders” as he called them has been a driving force behind the country’s

enacted in 1860 by British colonial rulers in the heyday of Victorian morality It punishes inter alia sexual intercourses between same sex persons with life imprisonment or rigorous or simple imprisonment up to 10 years After 1967homosexual acts between two consenting adults in private are no longer an offence in England Homosexuality has been decriminalised in several countries of AsiaAfrica and South America The US Supreme Court in 2003 ruled in Lawrence vs Texas that criminalisation of homosexuality between consenting adults was unconstitutional because it violated their fundamental rights of liberty and privacy Courts in other jurisdictions namelyCanadaAustraliaSouth AfricaFiji and Nepalas also the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourghave invalidated laws criminalising sexual intercourse between same sex adults Despite the above trend and the 172nd Report of our Law Commission submitted in 2000 favouring abolition of Section 377 this monstrous provision continued to remain on the statute Fortunately the Delhi High Court in its recent landmark judgment after a thorough and excellent analysis of the judgments of various courts and the legal and medical literature on the subject has ruled as follows: Section 377 insofar it criminalises consensual sexual acts of adults above 18 years of age in private is violative of the fundamental rights guaranteed by Articles 21 (personal liberty) and Articles 14 and 15 (non-discrimination) The High Court has not struck down Section 377 It has expressly stated that Section 377 will continue to govern non-consensual sex involving minors In essence homosexuality has not been legalisedmuch less advocated or championed It has been decriminalised with the salutary consequence that the police will not be able to barge into a persons bedroom and terrorise him or her with arrest and criminal prosecution with all the attendant trauma and stigma unless the extortionate demands of the police are met It is well known that Section 377 had become an instrument for harassment and blackmail The judgment rightly removes the stigma that a gay person is a criminal or an immoral person If some adults because of their sexual orientation are impelled to express and fulfill their affection with same sex persons in the privacy of their bedrooms without causing any offence or harm to anybodyexcept self appointed guardians of moralitysurely they cannot be treated as criminalstheir personal liberty violated nor can they be discriminated against for their alleged unnatural acts Praywho has the authority to define what is unnatural or against the order of nature If one subscribes to the regressive notion that the sole aim of sexual intercourse must be for procreationthen an absurd consequence will be that oral sex between husband and wife would be punishable under Section 377 Incidentally oral sex is vividly portrayed in Khajuraho temples The legal merits of the judgment may be debated Howeverto attack the judgment as an assault on the culture and fabric of Indian society betrays a narrow and sick mentality And for Heavens sake do not bring religion into the matter What may be regarded as sinful by some religious leadersis not necessarily a crime For examplecontraception is prohibited by certain religions and considered sinful But it is a far cry to proscribe that activity as a punishable crime The Delhi High Court judgment has liberated persons in the judiciaryand in the fields of lawliteraturescience and other disciplines from the stigma of criminality and immorality solely because of their sexual orientation The real merit of the judgment lies in its recognition that intimaciesprivacies and autonomies of human life and the right of an individual to make choiceswhich does not harm or infringe the rights of other personscannot be criminalised The judgment gives effect to the value of inclusiveness and highlights a vital fact that where society can display inclusiveness and understandingall persons can be assured of a life of dignity and non-discrimination It is hoped that this progressive and enlightened judgment is accepted by the State For

President Barack Obama’s healthcare law There are fewer why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might revive it and avert a GOP humiliation Leaders say the Senate will vote Tuesday on their healthcare legislation They’ve postponed votes twice because too many Republicans were poised to vote no That could happen again The latest bill by McConnell Republican Party (Kentuky) — and it could change anew — would end penalties Democrat Obama’s health care law slapped on people without insurance and on larger companies not offering coverage to workers It would erase requirements that insurers cover specified medical services cut the Medicaid health insurance program for the poor and shrink subsidies for many consumers IT FAILS: Awful Poll Numbers In an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll this month 51 percent supported the healthcare program while just 22 percent backed GOP legislation Perhaps more ominously for Republicans the AP-NORC poll found that by a 25-percentage-point margin most think it’s the federal government’s responsibility to ensure all Americans have coverage That’s a growing view — there was just a 5-percentage-point gap in March It underscores a harsh reality for the GOP: It’s hard to strip benefits from voters Awful CBO numbers File image of the US Senate Reuters The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says under McConnell’s plan 22 million more people would be uninsured by 2026 mostly Medicaid recipients and people buying private policies For single people the typical deductible — out-of-pocket expenses before insurance defrays costs — would balloon that year to $13000 up from $5000 under Obama’s law Note to the entire House and one-third of the Senate which face re-election in 2018: 15 million would become uninsured next year And though CBO says average premiums should fall in 2020 they’ll head up in 2018 and 2019 Oh yes The bill would let insurers charge people approaching retirement age higher prices than they can now boosting premiums "for most older people" CBO says Older people like to vote Awful Senate numbers With a 52-48 GOP majority the bill would survive if no more than two Republicans oppose it With the indefinite absence of the cancer-stricken Senator John McCain Republican-Arizon McConnell’s margin of error shrinks to one At least a dozen senators have expressed opposition to the legislation or been noncommittal Lawmakers and aides say others haven’t publicly surfaced Moderate senators from states with vast Medicaid populations want to protect those voters Conservatives consider it their mission to eliminate the law they’ve campaigned on abolishing for years These aren’t easily resolved disputes Presidential drag File image of Paul Ryan AP President Donald Trump wants "Obamacare" repealed He also has public approval ratings below 40 percent — Bad — and a propensity for turning on people Just ask House Speaker Paul Ryan Republican-Wisconsin and Attorney General Jeff Sessions After Ryan labored for months before the House approved its health care bill and earned a Rose Garden celebration Trump called the measure "mean" Trump said he wouldn’t have picked Sessions for his job had he known he’d recuse himself from investigations into Russian meddling in last year’s campaign Some lawmakers might not be blamed for declining to carry Trump’s water Lemons into lemonade The bill’s rejection would still let lawmakers cast votes showing their positions Supporters could say they honored their repeal "Obamacare" pledges foes could say they protected their states or adhered to conservative principles Defeat would let the Senate refocus on tax cuts or other initiatives though it’s unclear what major issues don’t divide Republicans A loss means there won’t be a GOP law voters might blame for healthcare problems they encounter Though Republicans may already own the issue in the public’s eye since they run the government IT PASSES: The unthinkable This isn’t happening right Republicans have run on repealing "Obamacare" for years The administration won’t let the effort fail without a fight Trump lunched with senators at the White House last week and tweeted that Republicans "MUST keep their promise to America" On Friday Vice President Mike Pence urged leaders of conservative anti-abortion and business groups to pressure
