So…a Ms Poonam, a 20 something tv model…. …is proposing, threatening, promising….depending on your viewpoint is going to strip. Now that , India’s MS Dhoni made India proud by getting the cup back after a long hiatus ….the lady in question has received threats and enticements, if the word is to be believed, to follow through…
I mean radical feminist would say a woman’s body is her temple and she can do what she likes – be thin or fat, strip or clothe, share it with men or women….sure….in principle na? or do you mean the real thing…arre bhai…yahan waise hi munni badnam and shiela jawani is making life a tad taxing for women….since not everyone is screen Akshay or real life Salman, not that many opportunities to find willing munni and shielas….so rape has become a age no bar crime in the recent past..a spate of rapes against the elderly women have landed at least one in a state of both mental and physical unconsciousness.
What is interesting is shiela and munni songs are obviously a two way street, there are poonams now who know what stripping can mean and can get them….Indian middle class will ask, “Hain, do her parents know? ” higher class will probably invite her to their parties for a demo….and lower class will probably abduct her before or after…. and all of them will comprise of mainly men because women are still dealing with the media surrogacy of let’s change at least one value – have sex before marriage…kyon? hain that is cool and we are nothing if not cool today….never mind that our marriages are still made- up through newspapers matrimonial and boyz are still marrying the cow that doesnt milk for free….to use an old adage….
In the west, the cool counterparts we are so wanting to be, is now brazenly using, dating websites…apparently, all those drinking holes and happy hours and sleep arounds are nor resulting in long term relationship or commitment. women even those living outside Indian context continue to experience “cultural traditions, religious obligations, family loyalties and community expectations.” (Hennink M, Diamond I, Cooper P, 2002).
but media says, turning 30? band baaza baarat, is a non-issue….just know “he wants my body….and share”….but media will not be the one carrying the responsibility of the outcomes …
So it is easier to be cool….especially when movies are being made by “Foren Corporations” .strip some of those values down and see if there is a product we can sell a little more of….awww naughty what did you think!
