Why is our artistic tradition best admired in foreign museums?
In a room that smelled of wood and glue, carpenters moved several clay pots with firm, round breasts into boxes destined for Belgium. Now Belgian rather than Indian eyes will feast on these ritual Vedic pots, part of a mammoth treatise on ‘The Body In Indian Art’, displayed across eight galleries. As wood shavings flew into the air around them, workers prepared more than 350 pieces of Indian art from 56 different museums for the move to Brussels.
Gone.

India and Indian are the biggest hypocrites and racists in the world.

Bollywood shows Indian heroines as item girls, but, in the IPL we need to import East European cheerleaders!

We have Kamasutra, Khajurao and other temples depicting all kinds of sexual images but, we don't discuss about sex. It is taboo.

Our marriage ads describe a prospective bride to be "wheatish complexion' when they are far from it!

Cheers

Oh how I objectify thee
My toasted double roti
My bride to be
On with ghee
On with honey
How much is that dowry money?
