Same-Sex Marriages Should Be Legalised In India – GD Monday
Welcome to week 5 of GD Monday!
(To view and comment on the previous weeks GD Monday posts, please click here.)
One of the schools of thought – Libertarianism – states to maximise autonomy and freedom of choice, emphasising the value of political freedom, voluntary association, and the importance of individual judgement. It propagates the idea of ‘free will’. But is the concept of ‘free will’ truly applicable when it comes to same-sex marriages? In a country where the legal age for girls to get married is 18 and guys – 21 but the drinking age is 25; can we really make a point to legalise same-sex marriage in India? Is India really ready to accept the notion of marrying for the sake of love and love only or is it still going to be determined by the social castes and class system which are considered the most important factor when it comes to marriage – the legal way to procreate? The question from to be or not to be is changed now to should we or, shouldn’t we? What are your thoughts on this?
This is how it will work:
1) Users can post their arguments in the comments section below by logging in through their www.insideiim.com User id.
2) You can argue and counter-argue on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!
3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.
4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each argument on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.
This cannot replace the experience of the actual GD but this exercise will surely help you shape your line of thought. While we may not be able to help you here with your delivery, we ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually speak in a GD after going through this exercise.
