Indian Sex Tapes?

I don't know that there are plenty of them. This Tehelka article deals at length with them.
I sure hope it's true that Indian youth are making sex tapes just for fun.
Because Indians clearly need to grow up and get over their prudishness about sex.
Indians keep on PRETENDING as if sex does not exist or as if it's a bad thing. Even in our language, there's no 'normal' word or phrase to refer to sex or porn, is there? What's Hindi for sex? For porn?
Anyways, so much "good quality" stuff of international origin is available in all the 'genres' of porn that Indians, if they are in the "game" are probably laggards here as well just like India ranks 156 or something in football.
We really need to change our mindsets and I mean in a revolutionary fashion. Porn and sex are NOT BAD just as much as 'sati' was bad. Who'll be the Rammohan Roy of the 21st century?

Here's how I 'wish' things would 'change.' I imagine a mainstream celebrity — it probably has to be female as there is clearly more 'demand' for female nudity from the male audience — willing creating a sex tape like Paris Hilton and other 'trail blazers' have already done.
Instead of shouting that the tape was "leaked," I wish a celebrity would simply say, "no, I did that on purpose. What's wrong with sex? I want my fans to enjoy watching me having sex."Is that too much to hope for in India?Going beyond that, I wish more ordinary Indians would create sex tapes of themselves and upload to paid sites. There can be a site like all those matrimonial sites where you become a member by paying 10,000 rupees or whatever and then get to see some good quality "amateur porn" or "real couples having sex."And of course the "theme" can then keep on expanding... to threesomes or having one's wife enjoy sex with another man with the husband present and so on. When will Indians and others grow beyond the idea of associating "marriage" with sexual exclusivity. It's not like if you got 'married,' that you bought a couch or TV or underwear or automobile for your 'personal' use. And we do not mind if someone sits on the couch or watches the TV or takes a ride in 'our' automobile; the only thing not to be shared is one's underwear.
So, will there ever be Naughty India?
Some Indians — particularly the senior citizens... or, as I like to call them, senile citizens, old foggies, etc. — might find these ideas to be 'outrageous.' Of course, the same middle class Indians do not find it outrageous that 600 million or so Indians defecate in the fields in the mornings and on the train lines.
We are young only once. I don't know if males look "good" when they are young; at least the females do. Make a sex tape; share it with the world; we will all be "old and dying and dead" as Vikram Seth put it.
Of course, the laws will need to be changed so that employers can't discriminate because somebody has a sex tape out there.
It should be as common place as folks having their own YouTube channels and videotaping themselves doing whatever fancies them.
Are Indians even creative enough to "utilize" the free platform that YouTube provides? I remember reading in Colin Powell's autobiography that he used to take out his car's engine and put it back together — many Americans (males mostly?) apparently have this obsession, this "hobby" and love affair with their automobiles.
Are there Indian car owners who can do the same and make a video and teach or share?
There's one Mr. P. Jalan who has his YouTube channel where he shares guitar chords of popular songs... since guitars are a bit of a hobby of mine, I happen to watch him once in a while.
There's one American young woman who makes short 4-5 minute videos talking about everything and her videos are watched by thousands as well. Probably her most famous YouTube video is titled "It's Only Sexist When Men Do It."
What prevents someone from starting a cookery channel on YouTube? Sure there are aunties and uncles cooking 'Mother's Chicken Recipe' or Butter Chicken or gulab jamuns or whatever else already on YouTube. But are you saying there is NO WAY to improve upon the uncles and aunts?I can think of plenty of ways to 'spice up' the cooking — mix it up with dancing, mix it up with sexy clothing.Why is there no Indian version of Top Gear — just take the basic idea of doing completely crazy things with automobiles and think up crazy stuff to do in India.Anyways, I should not share too much here. These are "creative" ideas and I should copyright them first to earn royalty in case anyone copies them.So, the point is about CREATIVITY. Sadly, Indians seem to lack in that department. The youth are just happy to follow in the well worn paths of their parents. Get some degree; get a job and then get married... probably to a first cousin!
Make a baby and have the idiot old MothFcukers give the baby a name; they get the naming rights. And of course what do the old idiots do? They fall back into the "only" knowledge they have; the idiotic Hindu myths and countless gods and come up with a stupid, old-fashioned name like 'Ram', 'Shyam' or some such absolutely disgraceful name.
And THIS is the India of 2013.

Sarah Kay's poem from TED

If I should have a daughter, instead of mom, she's going to call me Point B,

because that way she knows that no matter what happens, at least she can always find her way  to me.
And I am going to paint the Solar Systems on the backs of her hands, so she has to learn the entire universe before she can say 'Oh, I know that like the back of my hand'
And she's going to learn that this life will hit you, hard, in the face, wait for you to get back up, just so we can kick you in the stomach but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

Edward Snowden

This seems to me to be the defining journalism-whistle-blower story of this generation. It's rare in today's world when privileged people voluntarily choose to take steps whereby they give up comfortable lives to do something that is in the 'public good.' Mr. Snowden was clearly a computer whiz which explains why he got jobs at the CIA (including postings in Geneva under diplomatic cover). Booz Allen obviously did not hire him or pay him the $1,20,000 salary without Mr. Snowden showcasing some considerable technical expertise. I believe Mr. Snowden's expertise probably lies in having deep expertise in various flavors of Linux. That is what I am inclined to infer from his various job roles as a 'Systems Engineer' or 'System Administrator.' Being the self-driven sort of person that he was, I am sure he must be having good knowledge about networking and encryption stuff including but not limited to Cisco routers and related technologies. To put these t…

Top 10 Crazy Facts About India

Here's a random list of things. 1.Indians sometimes prefer to abort a fetus if they find out that it's female. (Or they just kill the new born baby after it's born.) 2.There are more than 20 million babies born in India. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. 3.Child labor is so commonplace in India that few notice it or consider it out of the ordinary. Kids work as waiters or dishwashers in roadside restaurants. Sometimes, kids ferry tea to the local police station from a nearby roadside tea stall. 4.Massive numbers of kids and younger and adult women are employed as maids in middle class to rich households. Middle class houses might pay 200 rupees to a female who comes and washes the dishes. Rich houses might employ women permanently by paying them more. 5.Cars in the Indian cities are washed in the morning by car-washers who tend to be young men who get paid around 100 to 200 rupees per month for this service. 6.India is home to some crazily competitive exams. The IIT JEE and the IIM CAT have …
