Phone cams outside DPS

Ok, so you thought the mobile phone cam fuss is over after the DPS incident?

2 Indians were caught in an Australian beach this time!!

How many of you still insist technology is to blame for this? I am beginning to have second thoughts on dismissing articles accusing India of having a voyeuristic population.

  • Hey Santanu,

    But isn't having and maintaing a blog catering to the voyeuristically inclined out there is this wide world of ours?

  • Nice seeing you here, Kevin!! Ya, I do agree with you, but then nothing's black and nothing's white ... everything is a shade of grey - which you as a preacher would know better than anybody else!! What worries me is the deeper shade of voyeuristic tendencies in Indians as compared to others. Is it the social habits, upbringing, culture, ethics/morals, repressive codes of conduct...or just the gene???

  • Gosh. I'm now a preacher? I'm a sinner, if anything!

    And voyeuristic habits are not the exclusive domain of Indians. It's a basic survival instinct for all of us. You gotta know what's happening outside your cave if you know what's good for you!

    Nothing in Indian culture, not in the epics, nor in the history, suggests a higher tendency to snoop on others. But that's just my two cents.

    Which frankly isn't enough to buy me a cup of coffee.
