Instead of feeling enraged I am somehow feeling amused to hear the news that police of state and moral police together did not let KISS day happen in Kerala.
One can not blame my misplaced feelings because ,I have learnt to find my entertainment to survive in the society paranoid of vulnerability of traditions.
Today you allow these morally bankrupt people to kiss in public ,tomorrow there will be a kiss fest on roads.
Its one thing to allow pissing , spitting or littering on roads , but allowing kissing is totally unacceptable because , kissing on road is against our culture while pissing ,spitting and littering is not.
Who will more importantly ,manage the crowd of bystanders voyeuristically watching the assassination of great Indian culture of 5000 years , which is interestingly inclusive of rape culture but bars the kissing culture, by the hands of two random stupid youngsters hign on oxytocin?
When Amir khan in 3 Idiots was baffled if nose comes in between while kissing ,he was not asking merely about the mundane protruding inhaling device on his face .It was a huge sociological question he was delving into, whether kissing is a private matter between the two consenting adults or we as a Indian society poke the nose to desist the kissing on road as a tradition .
The message from Kashmir to Kerala is unequivocally loud and clear by all religious, moral, social police that one can not get
As a couple one can walk together, eat together, dine together , laugh together but ............ Kozhiiing together No!!!!. finally there is a limit to which adults can be given freedom, consensual is not so important , potentially sensual for others is .
When BJP youth wing, Shivsena and some muslim religious group decide to come together for a cause the youth desirous of kissing, as responsible citizens of the country,should not attempt to KISS in public spaces for the following reasons;
ONE- these groups coming together is a hallmark of religious integration and it should be honored and respected by obeying to their
TWO, we are a nation of extreme complexities . We can not just condone anything which calls out for Keeping It Simple Silly or the more popular acronym KISS. We are a nation where we are NOT OK with public display of affection between youngsters . We pretend that two strangers meet with the intervention of parents , parents have some give and take of dowry , the two dancing clans eat ,merry and bicker and exactly after nine months these not so strangers by now, produce a proof of their asexual union without so much as kissing. PDA is definitely not in our culture ,its an affliction from west and kissing has absolutely no part to play in our lives.
Let the smooching be limited to Karan Johar movies and let the Imran Hashmis of Bollywood pull it off without being worried about causing a threat to Indian culture, let the Crores of moolah be spent in making and selling synthetic kisses but we can not let an original one get by without some serious protests because it is not a delicate act of lips brushing someone's object of affection on head ,cheeks........ , it is a horrendous act of having the potential to annihilate the entire Indian culture in one single brush.
Speaking of protests of kiss of love ..........of course the moral keepers have a right to thrash all these protesting and agitating kissers because if they are kissing just for the sake of protest ,it's not very difficult to imagine what would they do if they decide to sit on Dharana or some serious agitation.
when culture is at a stake , one can not argue or tell logic to its protectors. Finally one has to choose between forgoing a kiss of passion or embracing a kiss of death.
