difficulties For one thing the freedom to spend money on a private education is protected by the European convention on human rights However around half of all independent schools have charitable status Removing it would be complex and so politically contentious that it could trigger a wider tit-for-tat war over the role of charities Previous Labour governments tried to use the tax breaks granted by charitable status to demand that what in effect is a government subsidy of 150m a year delivers some measurable public benefit But a 2011 high court ruling overturned those efforts On Tuesday Tristram Hunt the shadow education secretary set out an alternative route to the same destination when he called for a new partnership between state and private schools to make some of the

lies untouched The location a dingy bar at the northern fringe of Kolkata is at his suggestion: “It’s very unlikely that we will bump into people I know” “Ours was not a happy marriage” he says Saha’s 11-month long relationship which is in the process of being annulled had its share of drama heartbreak and lies Some lies bigger than the other “Though I did toy with the idea of telling my wife that I am attracted to men more than women I decided against it It has nothing to do with our marriage” says Saha a 29-year-old marketing manager with a reputed firm in Kolkata But last week when a doctor at Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences committed suicide accusing her husband of “immense mental torture” Saha was rattled Priya Vedi had left behind a detailed note stating that she had discovered that her husband was gay and “accepted it” but was forced to kill herself because of torture “My marriage too could have taken an ugly turn” says Saha It is criminal to be a homosexual in India While a tiny minority find the courage to acknowledge their sexuality most live out their desires in secret For many men marriage is camouflage even convenience — but also the only way to imagine conjugal life While it is the law that pushes their relationships into the shadows of impropriety they also do not seem to believe that they owe the truth to the women they marry Saha never told his wife he is gay he is sure she never found out but his account of their tumultuous marriage tells otherwise His wife resented his close friendship with his ex-boyfriend “But my relationship with him ceased being sexual from the time I decided to get married” says Saha He is sure that he has played fair by his wife “Why should I feel guilty I was not cheating on her” says Saha Saha walked into the marriage because he wanted to build a family like one that his parents shared “I wanted a wife kids Yes I am attracted to men I do have physical relationships with them but I separate that from my regular life” says Saha When he forged a long-term sexual connection with a man he called it a “deep friendship” Why do homosexual men marry women and deceive them That is a question Vedi’s suicide has thrown up Not all the answers are black and white When Roop Mahapatra 36 decided to get married to a woman chosen by his parents two years ago he had reached a tipping point None of his same-sex relationships was headed for permanence “All my friends were getting married I felt intensely alone My father who was suffering from cancer wanted to see me settled I was deeply disillusioned with gay relationships and I wanted something rock-solid” says Mahapatra His wife Smita is an intellectual equal and shares many of his common interests He does not agree that by not telling her about his sexual orientation he is lying to her “Desire is a fluid thing for me Now that I am with my wife I am sexually attracted to her I think we lead a happy life” says Mahapatra Yet there have been moments of weakness When his ex came to visit from Bangalore Mahapatra was intensely drawn to him “We got drunk and things could have happened but I stopped myself” says Mahapatra There is one sword hanging over the Mahapatra marriage though: what if Smita finds out “I should make her feel so secure that even if she does it shouldn’t matter” says Roop That uncomfortable truth was out in the open in the Khurshid family within the first year of Rayaz and Zubaida Khurshid’s marriage Rayaz 45 the scion of a famous Muslim family of Gwalior was in a long-distance relationship with a white man even after his marriage “My wife overheard my conversation with my then boyfriend She threw a fit and left for her mother’s house immediately We had to hush things up and cajole her to come back because the reputation of two famous families was at stake” says Rayaz Twenty years on Rayaz and Zubaida are an apparently happy couple in a strong marriage “We reached a tacit understanding I do have sexual encounters with men but they are very discreet and I make sure that she doesn’t get an inkling ” says Rayaz When he got into this marriage he didn’t have a choice “Not just our families but our financial well-being depended on the match It was the early 1990s people weren’t open to the idea of a man being in a relationship with other men” says Rayaz The fact that he shares a love for food and literature with his wife has made it easy for Rayaz But this is not the life he had dreamt of “I always wanted to share my life with another man If I were of this generation maybe I would have rebelled and had my way But now it’s too late” he says Rayaz’s account glosses over Zubaida’s reality Why did she decide to be in a marriage with a man in love with another man What makes a woman accept such a life Sudeshna Sahoo 38-year-old homemaker from Kolkata married her cousin’s best friend “My cousin was against the match After I got married he would call my husband every waking hour and threw a fit when he heard that we are going for our honeymoon My husband made it clear that my cousin is the most important part of his life” says Sahoo He also assured her that the relationship was asexual “I have accepted that Moreover I have a bad marriage behind me I couldn’t afford another divorce” she says The inequality of most man-woman relationships are felt here too “The man lays down the rule and the woman has to make adjustments That rule applies to most marriages in varying degree” says Malobika of Sappho for Equality a Kolkata-based organisation working for sexually marginalised women And yet marriage remains a compulsion Back at the bar Saha says he hopes to get married again Why doesn’t he instead decide to live with the man he loves “I know you think I should
