Hey all the Chennai-walas – what is happening to you?? For a country and people who came up with Kamasutra and Khajuraho – isn’t it sad that our hypocrisy now knows no limits!!
Don’t speak the truth in Chennai. And don’t behave like you are living in a 21st century Indian metro. Movie star Khushboo did that and is now paying a heavy and heart-rending price for it.
And just what did the actor do? She said, rather innocuously, that men should no more expect their brides to be virgins. She also said that when youngsters indulge in premarital sex, they should use protection.
Anywhere else, Khushboo would have been called an anti-AIDS spokesperson and perhaps even feted but not Tamil Nadu with its insular politics and blinkered politicians.
It was almost as if the state was being guided by some Taliban-type morality inspectors. Police have in recent weeks closed a star hotel after local papers published pictures of a private party where couples were seen kissing and hauled up other couples just walking in parks.
