The great Indian Moral Brigade.


People want to preserve the Indian culture. 
In fact, lots of people want to.

I remember the saffron brigade. They harassed a brother and a sister, and forced them to marry each other on feb 14. Well.. the reason? They were seen together on that particular day. I dont think even Saint Valentine would have seen that day with that importance. So important that no matter what, the glass windows of Archies gallery will be normally broken on that day. 

Makes me feel. Is the Indian culture limited to girls and boys NOT seeing each other? The recent developments looks like Indian culture is all about chastity. Feels like Indian culture is about girls and boys of teen age or higher or lower not meeting each other. Feels like its all about NOT having a drink together.

I saw the opening ceremony of the commonwealth games. I watched with awe, the "Bharath Darshan" by Indian railway. I saw the colour of India. I saw the soul, I saw the life of India. I saw what they used to mean by Unity in diversity. I heard the drums pound. I loved every bit of the common India. That was the same India I used to love when I used to travel all over India some time back. That was the India I used to see. The  only act I could not tolerate was the hopeless performance of A R Rahman. His act did not have any element of India. The music had distorted guitar, and background dance with hopeless costumes and choreography which did not have any remote resemblance with anything of Indian origin. 

Then, yesterday, I saw the Karnataka Parliament. led by the same saffron Brigade. Trying to get through the non confidence motion. I see the games people play to stay in power. I see the moral Brigade. In action.

What has happened to the people? Is it that every generation is giving birth to more kids who are blind? Why is it that we have more of these kind of people in power with every year that dies by?

And, all we are bothered, is if girls and boys are having any Intimate relationships. If they exchange cards on feb 14. If they show bared breasts of a lady in TV.  Indian culture is being reduced to hiding body parts, and restricting boys and girls from interacting with each other. 

What ever happened to the Indian culture of tolerance? Whatever happened to the Indian culture of Love? Will the saffron brigade and the moral police ever look forward to grab the guys who steal millions of the taxpayers money?

NASA, the oldest pub in Bangalore is closed. Thanks to the moral police who wants every pub to be closed by 11.30. It is as if pubs are the only threat to the public. 

And thanks to the moral brigade, Indian men are the most perverted, they sport an erection every time a lady walks the road with a small portion of her cleavage in display, and then they ask the lady to dress well. And then they ask them to wear the traditional saree and stare at the small piece of belly button. They comment at every lady who are bold enough to break the rules. 

Sometimes, its like a man eating a full meal after being starved for about a month. 
The solution, is all about not letting the man starve.
Its all about respect to each other. 


PS: I am NOT biased to any political party. I hate this aspect of the saffron brigade, and that does not mean in any way I endorse any other political party. I an not a supporter of the congress party, nor the left nor any other party. I just expressed my difference of view in some aspects. No offence Intended.
