BC of the Day #6: Sunny Leone and a Tale of two…
11 years ago Books And A Lot More 9
Top stories of today:
Mamata sweeps urban Bengal, but loses Haldia (Yes, Mamtaji, Haldia is probably ‘Maoist’)
Congress won’t field candidate against Mulayam’s bahu (One Dynasty against the other, no, how could that be?)
US Strike kills Al Qaeda No. 2 (Yawn)
Diggy mocks Gadkari for touching Ramdev Baba’s feet (Oh Diggy ! Don’t forget your own stupid feats in the past !)
Google buys Meebo (And Quickoffice too, as if it wasn’t everywhere already!)
Djokovic makes stunning comeback to overcome Tsonga (And I couldn’t care less)
Well, so much has happened!
But I’ve missed out the most important news of all, and here’s the BC of the Day, specially dedicated to her !
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way”
-Charles Dicken, A Tale of Two Cities
Why is this important ? Apart from this being a marketing strategy for Jism 2 (yes, I am a sincere marketing student), I want to see who buys the lingerie on sale. Buying lingerie of your favorite actress is one thing. Buying lingerie of a porn actress is another. India has largely been hypocritical when it comes to sex and related topics. It is the same India that revels in Pallu-ed ladies in TV soaps, the epitome of the ‘ideal’ bahu. It abhors public displays of affection like a simple peck on the cheeks. It takes pride in the sanskaars which have been passed on from generation to another. But India seems to have accepted Sunny Leone into the mainstream. Is India slowly moving on from being a conservative society to a permissive one?
No, not really! The same India doesn’t allow ‘The Dirty Picture’ to be shown on TV. The same India created a furor over the ‘obscene’ paintings by M F Hussain. It is the same nation which created a big controversy about the sex scene in a TV soap (if a bit of smooching and fake orgasmic expressions on being kissed count as sex). So it seems as if we are selective in what is acceptable and what is not.
That is why any news about Sunny Leone is so important.

PS I hope Charles Dickens isn’t rolling in his grave. 🙁

Well, I think India is divided into two categories, one being the orthodox people who say they want their culture and tradition to be passed on to the next generation, and the other category is of the rebellious people of my age who are fascinated with the american lifestyle, who want to be a little more independent of their choices. We people, easily accept and want more of a modern life. Whereas, the older generation doesn’t. In my opinion, A person’s profession doesn’t matter when the person itself is fine with it. So It’s just the revolt between the generations which causes censoring and hypocrisy when it comes to sex scenes or anything related.

There is a difference. The younger generation is still influenced by the older generation. You’d be surprised to know that there are also individuals who fall in the younger generation category, who support censorship.

Sunny Leonne is not a typical indian women whose loose morals should be punished.. The very people who watch her steaming.. er streaming on different porn sites consider that for a porn star it is okay. it is as if they have given up any hope of “teaching her a lesson”. But with the bhartiya naree .. that is not the case no?? 🙂

Hah, I quite agree. It has become so important to ‘discipline’ women.
