Richard Gere kissing Shilpa scares 'Shilpa's owners'

When I was a kid movies were raunchier, Bangalore was more happening, people were more tolerant, etc. etc. People laughed about scandals. And Indian culture was very attractive to me in its totality and I never missed a religious movie or the chance to talk to a religious person. Now, very often when FTV, foreigners, NRI happen to enter to this scene a group of people cry on the fall of ' Indian culture'.

You know what I think? These special group of people who protest always had the illusion that they owned all the pretty people in the country - irresepctive of how ugly they themselves were - because of their power or what? Now, they feel scared because they see a world that they are loosing control on. That's why they have suddenly are becoming paranoid - enough to put an arrest warrant on Mr. Gere and Shilpa for kissing!

Culture happens. Its not controlled or created.
