Hugging and kissing your loved ones in the presence of other people is still considered taboo in India. When you hug or kiss a person in public, A person outta nowhere comes to thrash or give you a moral lesson about our culture. But when a girl is molested or raped, the same fucking person will remain silent.
In India, People continuously talk about culture with pride. Now, this pride thing is pretty dangerous, one who takes pride in his culture, gender, religion, caste or the language will forget humanity instantly without even thinking a bit.
One thing we must understand is that there is no constant culture. What we call now culture may not have been the same hundreds of years back. A culture is like species it evolves. It adapts and creates something new just like a language.
So people who say that adapting Western culture will surpass our culture is the same person who I told you about in the beginning.
Hugging or kissing a person is out of love. Love is the only thing that keeps us, humans, after all. Stop questioning and instead start embracing it.
This thing has become so serious that even a person cannot hug his friend to comfort him/her at college. Even the so-called progressive professors will call that an obscene act and even fuckin punish for that.
We keep on blaming society, forgetting that we’re that fuckin society. Stop seeing couples in public as some immoral people. Stop treating homosexuals like they are not humans. Stop taking pride in everything and let’s try to be humble. Pride kills.
Stop hitting or killing a couple who hug or kiss each other in the public. Instead, rise up your voice against the rapists and people who are in power and refuse to take action against this. It’s about time we stand united against them.
Show love to everyone. Hug and kiss people you love. There is absolutely nothing obscene about it. The only obscene thing about this is reacting stupidly by claiming that this is against our culture.
What we have to preserve and teach the next generation is humanity, not culture.
Spread love, Xoxo
