Saurabh Kirpal has been recommended by the Chief Justice NV Ramana-headed Supreme Court collegium and if he does achieve the post, he will be India’s first openly gay judge in history.

Kirpal’s name has been suggested several times earlier for elevation but was turned down for the past 4 years. His promotion might had been hindered due to the Union government’s precursory objections due to his sexual orientation. However, now as the times have changed, people hope that his promotion is finalized as it would be a major step toward open-mindedness for the country’s conservative citizens.
