I support Fashion TV!
By: Team SouBoyy, SouBoyy Bureau, India | Television & Fashion
I love freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, especially freedom towards art and artists, and if freedom is restricted somewhere, I do not feel good. I just heard that Information and Broadcasting Ministry recently ordered that Fashion TV be taken off air for 10 days! You have GOT to be kidding me. How barbaric is that??? Thank God, in France the french people have some freedom in the lovely nation in Europe.
I guess the Ministry should ban Oxford, Crosswords, Time-Out and other good bookstores from keeping KamaSutra (Vātsyāyana Kamasutram), an Indian book and the Ministry should ban Khajuraho temple (the temple of love) too where naked apsaras sculptures are visible to all including children! There are countless examples where nudity is openly projected in art exhibitions in India, and nudity is nothing new for a 5500 year old civilization like India where we have experienced almost everything that the world is experiencing now.
India played a major role in the history of sex, from writing the first literature that treated heterosexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality union as a science. Nudity in art, was considered artistic in India, as shown by the paintings at Ajanta Caves, and Indians being majorly living in a tropical country did not need to wear clothes, and other than for fashion, there was no practical need to cover the upper half of the body. This is supported by historical evidence and our scriptures, that Indian women often covered upper part of body with gold, precious stones, and expensive jewelries. I do not understand why Fashion TV should go through such brutality??? The viewers of Fashion TV does not find anything obscene, fashion derives from art, and India among all nations worldwide should be most liberal for expression of arts, culture and fashion.
