The year 2015 is the year of Gags & Bans. In less than six months, we have outlawed a variety of items and expressed outrage over juvenile sentimental transgressions; all in the gallant defence of our inherently fragile sentiments and our oh-so-immaculate Indian Culture.
As we enter the sixth month, here is my list of six titles (all fictitious) you are least likely to see on any bookshelf; six books that will never see the light of day. Six instances when the precepts of democracy and free speech took a back-seat in our valiant effort to "save" hurt feelings.
Thanks a lot Hon President Sir for the assent on MaharashtraAnimalPreservationBill.Our dream of ban on cow slaughter becomes a reality now.
