Our Indian way of life is under attack once again. And if you thought a bomb at the bus stand or the rising price of petrol or the deteriorating law and order situation were the biggest challenges to our national well-being well you obviously have been thinking with just your brain.
Cause they are not.
A new menace is here, an insidious agent of malignancy that creeps silently into your bedrooms (and yes even offices when the boss is not around). Assuming the form of electron streams, it activates pixels on your computer screen with certain poisonous RGB values which, before you know, sap you of your morals, your humanity and also more than a bit of your energy.
For those of you who have no idea of what I am saying and for those of you pretending not to understand, I am talking about a certain “Bhabhi”, India’s first sensual comic character, whose excapades with a lingerie salesmen and budding cricket players have become a threat to the nation’s moral security.
Now I am sure a lot of you are mocking me right now. You are saying “How is this different from any adult themed site?” Why am I suddenly so bothered by this?
Well because this time the peddlers of smut have gone too far. As articulated beautifully by an outraged Netizen, a person who suggests the CBI to step in to arrest the content creators of the site.
In my opinion this site is more dangerous than a normal adult site since it targets young Indian audience and degrades women.
I agree. Most normal adult sites do not target younger audiences and depict women as fully-rounded individuals with feelings as opposed to just a composition of attractive body parts.
This site however is different. It is exclusively aimed at corrupting young Indians by striking at the very root of the Indian family. And with the Tehelka pointing out the cleverness of the people behind the endeavor—-in the month of April taking advantage of the post-budget season they had the bra-salesman, in the month of May they had a cricket-themed story in line with the IPL craze—I suspect a Pakistani plot hatched by the Bhab-i-Kharabi faction to trigger a collapse of the Indian family system. An endeavor in which they are being supported by the intellectuals who are sprouting fashionable words like “sexual consumerism of a post-colonial nation” to cover up the worst kind of perversion.
And the effects are already being felt. And no not just in locality boys knocking their balls into certain neighboring balconies with increasing frequencies or the friendly vacuum cleaner salesman asking for a glass of water at every house he visits but in increasingly weird behavior from our ma behen.

Aarti (name changed), 24, a marketing manager admits, “I fantasize my husband tying me to the bed and spanking me, abusing me and playing hard on me. It makes me feel like a wild cat waiting to be controlled.”
More such perverse ideas detailed here at the Times of India. Expect a few of these to make it to a certain comics strip.
Well I sincerely hope that this site (whose URL if I provide I might be in trouble under Indian law) gets banned and its creators forced to sell men’s underwear in a prison.
Only then can we revert to the age-old rural innocence that is our tradition, a chaste utopia unsullied by the Net perverts.
A “mahaul” where a newly wed wife sings about multiple shifts of “duty” in her husband’s home in “Duty double sasurar main” .
Or an environment where a song is introduced as “Bihar main chal rahe teen din se devaron ke hartal aaj samapt hui. Mukhe mantri shreemati Rabri Devi unke maangein sweekar karte huye Bihar ke tamam bahujaiyon ko phagan bhar ke liye free karne ki ghoshna ki hain. Devar jab chahe, jahaan chahe, jaise chahen apne bhoujaiyon pe rang dal saakte hain” [Link]
Or a world where a devar can ask “Arrey Bhabhi, zyara mera doodh-badaam aur koyla dena to!” and be given a reply as apt and as innocent as “Arrey wah, devarji, badan ke liye doodh-badaam, aur daaton ke liye koyla?”
