A basic lack of tolerance. People still debating over valentine’s day. Whether it is corrupting the youth of our country? Why it should be banned? I could throw up. Really. Moral policing? In 2006? Give me a break. How can someone define what is right for me? What is wrong? Who decides what is acceptable? Who decides what is obscene? What is unnatural? Huh? Nonsense! Some silly old, frustrated, kinky jerks who think they know what Indian culture is? Can even one of them tell me about the history of the country? The heritage? Am sure they cant. They are blinkered. They should be shot dead. Each one of them. What if person A wants to buy person B flowers, chocolates, cards and take person B on a date? Huh? What is wrong with that? What is wrong if they kiss? Express their love? What part of our ‘culture’ is being compromised here? And god forbid if the person A and B happen to be of the same gender. Shudder shudder. Westrern corrupt values. Kill them? Send them to the West? That has been done at an indirect level anyways whereby queer people have migrated to other more tolerant countries. Gandhian principals of non-violence and tolerance? Are they alien to us? Is that not our ‘culture’? is it not a fundamental-human-right? Huh? You bash-up/ kill people who ‘love’ people who according to you should not be loved by them? If there are any prescriptions as to who should be loved and by whom, then please burn them. Or is there a genocide in the planning to exterminate all deviants? Huh?
Do we not have more pressing issues in our country? Female infanticide? Or forget such irrelevant (relatively) issues. How about basics like water? Food? Education? Dignity comes way below in the list. But we still harp about valentine’s day. D-I-S-G-U-ST-I-N-G.
