Highlights of India Today – 24th September 2018 issue:
The cover story this week - Free At Last - looks at the Supreme Court's recent verdict that decriminalised homosexuality and recognised the constitutional rights of LGBTQ people. The judgement emphasises on the role of the courts to step in to prevent violations of fundamental rights, when the legislature and executive fail to do so.
The cover story package also explores five different aspects of the Supreme Court judgement. These include the experiences of a gay filmmaker in the Indian film industry before and after the 2018 judgement, and stories of gay people from across the country.
The story - Turbulence Ahead - looks at the troubles looming over Air Asia and how controversies over a domestic tie-up threaten to crash the Tata Group's dream of a comeback in the aviation sector
The story - First Mover Advantage - looks at how Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has played a masterstroke by advancing the assembly elections by eight months, and at the same time catching rivals unawares.
The issue also comes with three free magazines: Simply Mumbai, Simply Pune, and Simply Punjabi.
