issues that otherwise won't matter to the others

Kisses and their voices

A couple of weeks back she was a Hero(ine). People were praising and wooing her for her speaking out in the open about the abuse done to her by a Britisher during the reality show – Big Boss. People talked and were glad that the traces of racial discrimination which still existed in the minds of a few unchanging minds had popped out. Facts that had been lying dormant had been exposed. However, justice seemed to be served then. She was a winner. All were happy.

Whats the scene now with the same Hero(ine). The same sentiments are nowhere near to be seen. It was about aids awareness to a large group of lorry drivers who are usually prone to aids, often due to lack of knowledge.
And when a few well wishing people looked into the matter to educate them in this context, celluloid icons standing up for the cause, a few kisses (not so passionate as in any movies) were implanted in a very romantic way, the so called moral groups rose up against it. Richard Gere kissed Big Boss winner on her cheeks (not lips) again and again. The message was clear. Be safe. Prevent aids.
The kiss
But out there on the other circuits, fingers were raised. It was said to be vulgar. Moreover it was said not to be in Indian culture. What the heck. My two question to these voice raisers:

1. Have you heard of Kamasutra?
2. Where did Kamasutra originate from?

I am sure that these so called moral polices are being very narrow minded and making a fool of Indian culture. Its not sure whether the same people want to see the country prospering or not. If not then let hell loose. If yes, are they ever aware that these only add a sense of humour to the people outside. Time and again they had been and will be raising their voices displaying their cultural integrity. Well then, can these guys also look into the other so often happening issues in the country. Can they or are they ever going to raise their voices against domestic torture against women, rape of girls as small as their own kids, foeticide, useless public rallys and all those. No they won’t do anything. Just sit back hear the news.

Long live India.
