Reminds me of last year's Bangalore riots and vandalism after the death of a film star from natural causes (as though the star had died intentionally just to spite them).
We are hung up on symbols here, with the symbol often being more important than the reality. But this is a fact of the culture.
'highly Sexually erotic' --- oh what bollocks when you consider the pseudo-sexual erotic dance scenes that are what keep the young men addicted to their cinema. Why don't they ban that!
So, on this side issue --- which is of vastly more importance than the 'issue'--- I'm afraid I do believe what might appear to be unbelievable stistics.
but I read an article in The Hindu newspaper quoting a report which found it to be an astonishing, frightening and apauling percentage. Certainly the majority.
It was a full-page article and I felt pale when I'd finished reading it. I can only say that I asked my wife, 'can this really be true?'; without hesitation she replied, 'Yes'.
I think that the cause of women was done a great disservice in the west a few years back by groups, with various agendas and biases, who announced studies revealing that, eg, most women had been raped. Further enquiry revealed that the definition included being glanced at from accross the street, or some such.
He must have plenty of spare time!
This issue tells the world exactly why India's AIDS crisis will not be resolved in the forseeable future [cry]
I don't know about the rest of you but I wish Gere's apology wasn't headlined!
No wonder important cases are pending in our courts for ages. The Supreme Court should issues instructions to lower courts not to entertains such trivial complains as they are a waste of tax payers money.
Many, many ordinary cases languish in the courts for years.
It is to the advantage of many litigants just to keep the case idling: while it is in court, for instance, land cannot be sold.
It is just like Bleak House.
