Our be saluted cop thinks, speaks in practical about public romance, still keeping strict when it comes to Women security and ‘Obscene acts’..”
Public Romance and Mumbai City
As said Mumbai is not that liberal when it comes to kissing in public like the culture it has in United States and other sexually more liberal countries. Yet, i have read a funny lines on Internet and other media like “You Can’t Kiss in Public, But You Can See People Pee..”, that’s funny and true. Until recently, City was not really that easy for couples when it comes to publicly seating together hand-in-hand, girls head on beloved shoulder and kissing openly expressing love at public places and lovers points like Bandstand Sea face at Bandra, Chowpatty and Versova Beach, Worli Sea face, Aksa beach, National Park etc. Mumbai police is not un-heartly, Yet when it comes to Women safety in public, Rules has to be strict, else now world know the recent ‘Gang Rape Of Delhi’. Strict patrolling at Bandra bandstand, that rocky fort in same location filled with couples romancing was and is still in place, yet the difference is that before couple were warned by police when seeing romancing, some threats to call parents, torchlight shining during cozy moments in dark and such embarrassing times was faced by lovers.
Just couple of month before, these rules were different at Thane district of Mumbai which didn’t lasted for long, Late evening unmarried couples were not allowed to hand around isolated spots etc, they were called upon for a thrashing speech as at same period the Delhi Gang Rape case was hot. The rules were immediately taken back as it was not so perfect when it comes to public independence. Now Mumbai and Thane district is liberal to love at public places in limits, If our city police have shown some practical move, Its our young generations duty to abide the same and show equal respect and keep our beloved Mumbai safe for women.
