After the huge disappointment of having his Private Member's Bill to amend 377 slapped down even before it could be introduced, Shashi Tharoor went on to start a change.org campaign calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality, receiving 65k+ signatures in a few days. After all that support, you would think MPs would have changed their mind? At least, Tharoor seemed optimistic. But in Indian politics, lessons are seldom learnt. The MPs went on to defeat the introduction of Tharoor's Bill once again.
