The character called ‘Asok’ has been featured earlier as an intern from the ‘India Institute of Technology’ and has only today come out as gay.

Today’s strip shows ‘Dogbert’- Dilbert’s canine companion introducing Asok as “officially gay” to commemorate the “hopelessly ignorant decision” of the Indian Supreme Court to criminalize homosexuality.
