It is a topic lacking centre point because people of different age group have different set of mind. Ritika a 20 year old college going student says “display of passion by couples in public is not acceptable as it is embarrassing for others around”.
Public Display of Love And Affection (PDLA) is a common sight these days. One can find public parks, theatres, cafes that are full of couples who are involved in themselves so deeply that they avoid the existence of other people around them. It is mortifying not only for the people around but also for the couple, though they may not realise it.
Another fact is that excess display of love and affection in public is a sign of insecurity and lack of confidence in ones relationship. It is also a sign of immaturity. Amongst teenagers puberty is one of the cause of development of such sexual feelings which eventually leads to its display in public.
People who witness such kind of situation may also feel jealous and disgusted with it. We must realise that such PDLAs cannot be avoided rather we must learn ways to deal with them. The most common thing that can be done is to avoid looking at the couple.
Moreover, one can also feel less embarrassed if he gets acquainted with the couple which is not possible most of the times. If you feel jealous then keep calm have faith that you may also find your beloved someday. If you feel disgusted then you must move out of that place.
Rekha mittal a 54 year old housewife says “ what fun is it to kiss and hug in public and be a part of peoples attention... If one has to do so then it better to do behind the doors.’’
We must realise the fact that we are Indians; living in 21st century makes not much difference. Teenagers should learn to control their sexual behaviour when in public. A little touching while talking is a natural gesture but excess of physical contact in public is surely an issue for many.
Jawwad a 21 years old college going boy says “ teenagers should learn to maintain the worth and respect of their love affair by not making it a public show.”
Love is a natural feeling. It is a powerful flow of emotion which leads to sexual desire for each other but a person should have control over such desire. We must maintain the sanctity and purity of our love by not making it a matter of fun for others.
Privacy should be maintained and the will of other partner should be considered. One must display love heart to heart, as love can be felt even from a distance of thousands of miles.
