The scourge of Bollywood

The poison of pornography injected into the Indian households

After Jackpot’s blast Bollywood has just released Ragini MMS 2 with a bang! Lots of news — titillating and riveting to prod the bodily desire. Thanks to Sunny Leone’s past profession, the film-makers are pointedly cashing in on it, as obviously understood. Hardly any newspapers now miss to add epithets to this vivacious lady as adult-star or porn-star to make the readers more inquisitive. For about past two years we all have been unfailingly updated about her tidbits and gossips. Thus, the bestiality of porn has now been forced into the inner sanctum of the Indian households.

Do we want our children to know about pornography?

Given the manners and styles Sunny Leone is being presented by the electronic media – are we not uncomfortably confused that our children now might see this woman also as their role model? Won’t they become tempted to emulate a porn-star who receives so much of appreciation and warm welcome with even privileges to grace the key public events? What could be the height of bizarreness that this lady is ever mobbed by a swarm of media crews? To them she is a Goddess from the heaven descended down to bless us all. What messages do it send out to our children, can anyone guess dispassionately?

Well, make a sneaky peek into Sunny’s facebook page – it unfolds a whole lot of unspeakable things. Just find out how many million fans’ likes she has earned from INDIA alone, and analyze their opinions, perception plus our naughty silence in respect to her raunchy flicks – of both Bollywood and the other-world.

The number of her fans began to shoot astronomically when she was invited to jazz up Bigg Boss about 2 years ago. No denying, the majority of masses in INDIA were not aware of what exactly porn-world is all about until her ground-breaking entry into the country. Till just a year or two ago the policemen would swing into action to pounce upon any suspects with obscene literature or digital CDs. But now the lustful roar is coming out from Bollywood itself for the mass consumption. Media and Bollywood are hand in glove in this unprecedented scheme for the success. It’s not that there is any absence of a voice of protest against the porn-star. But the media seldom give such coverage however vehemently the public disapprove of.

Well, by now many must have been sufficiently grown curious to know who this over-discussed bold lady is and what she does and so on and so forth. Just googling on the net will flood us with the unmentionable things that we had never known or could ever have imagined existed.

A good many may have been already pulled down into the whirlpool of this murky underworld. And some might have sorely been afflicted by its addiction syndrome — the most damning malady ailing a chunk of the western population. It’s long been acknowledged that this voyeurism has drastically shattered the millions of the households, their marital relationships, contaminating their sacred thoughts and ruining their personal values, as often been revealed in hundreds of journals published across the world after the exhaustive surveys.

‘A true strength of sex and its purity and purposes have drastically gone down these days. The marital bond is dismally slack now. An easy access to pornography and sex are the contributing factors’, quips Dr Naresh Patel, a scholar and writer from Mumbai.

Again one academician from Delhi opines ‘I strongly believe that many unsuccessful models or film-stars in INDIA have already been tempted to follow in the footstep of Sunny Leone. Very soon they will boldly claim that they are porn-stars vying for Bollywood opportunity as Sunny Leone. And, some young girls will now have less qualm to join this bandwagon of pornography.’

My honest questions — are we not becoming unclear of what is right and wrong for the society? What is good and bad for the households? What is virtuous and sinful for our inner selves? Further, are we truly serious about pondering over the ominous repercussion of such pornographic thoughts that are fast taking space in the mindset of our grown up children, let alone the matured adult? Will not the perverse thoughts make way for perverse indulgences that will take its toll on their studies and later in their marital lives, adversely affecting family values?

Have we not become a bit dithery to say no to this windfall of wanton exhibitionism? Should the blatant female objectification in the entertainment world not raise our eye-brows and awaken our inner sensibility anymore? Have we not witnessed the enough instances of cold-blooded rapes, sexual violence against women and a host of other perverse sexual activities in the society? A prostitute may harm a few individuals while the pornography can destroy the soul of a whole generation and the next.

Here our silence against the the breeding of vices is akin to the acceptance which could well-mean that our inner strength of morality has become weak and feeble that it fails now to prompt us to stand upright against the evil.

Phew, our silence might make the lustful holler of decadence still shriller!

    Ur news-portal truly deserves a pat on its back for carrying a wonderful article. Such insightful articles for the right awareness are the need of the hour when Bollywood is mindlessly churning our titillating cinemas to corrupt the mind and character of our children and also gullible masses… Even the so-called intellectuals are either keeping mum or are not aware of it’s adverse impact upon the society which Mr has rightly pointed out.
    Just look at now all our children know who is Sunny Leone and what she does. It’s too shocking and we all parents are silent. Is it not detrimental to our society and family values? More dangerous is now when Bollywood is rolling out the red carpet to welcome porn-stars and we quite. Where are those active women organizations? Why do they keep mum when females are symbolically portrayed in cinemas only as the object of lust??
