Indian Express reporter, Deepu Sebastian Edmond, muses on what led him to cover a story on the gay Aligarh Muslim University professor, Shrinivas Siras, who committed suicide. "I like to think that Siras and I bonded over our naivety. Each of us assumed that it was about ourselves: A reporter after a story, a middle-aged man outraged that someone would barge into his home with a video camera.
