Redefining SHAME!



In an elite social networking site inhabited by most educated liberated and enriched individuals, a hot debate raged on the topic of a celebrity artiste hounded out of India for insulting religious sentiments who recently accepted foreign citizenship.

Was it a shame for Indians? 'NO! NO! NO!' shrieked all barring a few hesitant voices. 'You dare insult us? You deserve to be hounded out!'

Well, recently a political stalwart was expelled from a national party for writing a book that contained things not acceptable to some.

There is no mercy in the largest democracy of the world. All creative souls can no longer afford to express opinions here in any medium that may not please some. Make one mistake and prepare for an exile or get humiliated or even killed. Ideals of a few intolerant groups are cited and followed ecstatically. In the land of Gandhiji tolerance no longer exists. Social networking sites seem to be entirely bereft of any socializing thoughts!

SHAME needs to be redefined urgently and permanently in this country! Anyone
listening?
