Chak de, cheerleaders no more

Incredible, really incredible, is our country! No cheerleaders, no six please! Was it so? Ask Mahendro Singh Dhoni.

The recent debate over IPL cheerleaders raises two questions. First, do obscenity in the field adds more glamour? Second, have we ever questioned the sexuality in the so called ‘bollywood’ movies? Probably, we are too busy or we don’t care at all.

The concept of ‘Cricketainment’ is good as far it adds more excitement to the audience. Often, we Indians do like to add extra in everything. Sorry, there is a limit to it. India is a country where the question morality or decency is being repeatedly used or misused. It’s because we’ve too much of democracy?

Thanks to our courageous politicians for not allowing boogie-boogie business in the field. We all know, sexual violence in our country is on the soar. Be it in the metros or even in the rural areas sexual related cases are being reported everyday. It’s seriousness can only be felt by the victims.

It’s not only cheerleaders that needs scrutiny, our bollywood film industry has done a lot promoting immorality in the society. Such vulgarity in the movies should also be banned totally. So, if politicians can ban cheerleaders then, why can’t our politicians legislate laws that will make us more morally sensible.

We are social beings. We need morality and decency, not not foreign ingredients to add more glomour in the field.

Continuing violence against infants, girls and women are being reported on a daily basis makes me feel that India is suffering from female-hatred mania.

In another shameful incidence, under the Meera Road police, Mumbai, on March 18, a father was arrested for allegedly raping his two daughters on the advice of a ‘tantrik' in an attempt to become rich for ten years. Shocking enough is the fact that mother was also a part of the crime. He first raped his elder daughter, now 23-year when she was just ten years old and continued for ten years. According to the sources, father was...
Their face is their fortune. Lipsticks and powder are their regular items. Their ill-fitted blouses and colourful saris make them awesomely beautiful as they walk the streets for their livelihood. It’s estimated, India has 1.2 million eunuchs (transgenders). Yet, even after sixty years of India’s independence, no official data has ever been made to estimate the actual existence of eunuchs so far. Of this ninety-nine percent of eunuchs are either illiterate or semi-literate, having no source of income, except begging. Nearly 90% of Indian eunuchs live in poverty in grief condition. Their survival is through begging, entertaining in marriages/parties, blessing newly born child,...

But it’s very unfortunate, on Sunday evening; Amann Kuchroo, 19 a first year medical students in Dr. Rajendra Prasad Medical College, Tanda, Himachal Pradesh was allegedly ragged to death by four seniors students. It’s deeply inconsolable to the Amann’s family that they lost their only son in such an inhuman manner. In the west it’s the frequent campus shoot-outs, whereas in India, it’s certainly the ceremonial and criminal raggings in academic institutions that turn students’ lives into nightmare. Though ragging has been strictly banned in some colleges and...
714 MILLION Voters will decide the fate of the formation of the next govt. Will loud election campaigns in the streets be a history?

In India more than 45 million people have access to Internet and of this 57 percent are aged between 18 to 35 years. For, NDA’s Prime Ministerial...

It’s too precious for India too loose its national property. The debate that has been going on since the last few weeks has come to an end.

Analytically, it is useful to look at Tuesday’s murderous terror attack on Sri Lankan cricketers near the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore in broad ways.

Worst still, the recent gruesome acts of violence against school children; a 35-year-old school teacher of a private in Ghaziabad murdered a class 7 student by slitting his throat. It...

Or has he learnt anything form Narendra Modi who did the same? It’s really amazing, a smiling face with a message “welcome to the website of Shri L.K. Advani”. If you happen to...
