Political parties have been using actor and actresses in their election campaign to woo the voters but please mind it: in full clothes.
Term it as a coincident or planned act, both the incident took place merely a week after the Apex Court of India, giving a contemporary interpretation to 154-year-old Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act of 1968, ruled that "A picture of a nude or semi-nude woman, as such, cannot per se be called obscene unless it has the tendency to arouse the feeling or revealing an overt sexual desire”.
The Supreme Court deserves appreciation for its sensible and broadminded verdict keeping in mind the citizens of contemporary India.
But do the acts committed by the two models were appropriate? Earlier we used to say that politics is corrupt practice and a dirty business. Now, will it be called obscene to? What message these models trying to convey by posing almost nude? Will it help any of the party in general election 2014? The answers may differ or may be same; depending upon person to person and it also depends on morality of the doer and the viewer.
