Given the state of affairs of the Indian Media, I’m positive the photographer or the journalist hasn’t taken the permission to publish this picture. Maybe I’m wrong. If only they have taken the permission of the guys on the photograph, what the heck guys, what’s wrong with posting those pictures? No one morphed few photographs to make this collage. It seems real, it’s happening. Agreed, it’s an invasion of privacy and that is a cause of concern but none of these blogposts seem to raise that as an issue. If that’s the concern, I take it. Rather if someone is passing moral judgements on what should and what should not appear on newspapers, are they not trying to do the same moral policing which happened in Chennai clubs, few months back.
Remember the issue with Shankar’s Boys when the whole Tamilnadu took a holy dip with a rush to save the boys’ virginity. This one seems like a similar issue involving excessive amounts of vigorous hypocrisy. Who’s having the last laugh now ?
