the kiss miss kiss enigma

kiss the miss or miss the kiss ? a difficult choice.
if you are at marine drive on the evening of nov 2nd.
never mind whether you are in front on the stage or 
at the back among the audience. or in front of the
t v  in your drawing room. it is time to take the call
and cast your vote. NOTA excluded.

kiss and her cousins were private property so far.
hidden behind closed lips. held close to the heart
by arms crossed shoulder to shoulder. away from prying
eyes and clicking cameras, except, may be, the hidden

not any more. kiss is now in the public
hotels.on face book. and now in a sponsored programme.
at the marine drive ernakulam in the evening on
sunday the 2nd of november 2014. for all to see
and judge. and all of us are invited by default.

the current wave took roll when  moral police
vandalised a coffee shop in kozhikode. for allowing
consenting adults to give and take a few kisses
while people watched sipping coffee. self appointed
morality enforcers felt the country should have a moral
code. which should be imposed by any means including
violent interventions. 

coffee enthusiasts took offense. how come a coffee den
is pulled down this easily.intellectuals took up the issue.
what will happen to tea shops and beer parlours tomorrow ?
the common man got involved. they wondered if it is the
first lesson of an intensive course on fascism.

and the campaign went viral. face book groups decided to
defy the morality mughals . with a hundred kisses in the
open. at marine drive. rest assured that none can pull
down the marine drive that easily.

decency fanatics are not keeping quiet . hell bent on
clearing this land of all indecencies real or imagined,
they are planning counter offensive. the stage is set.

and you and me have to take sides and make choices.
kiss the miss or miss the kiss . not an easy task.
but i have made up my mind becoz i got wind of the
real issue.

 the crux of the problem is not the urge for indecent exposure
but  the inability to control the craze to look for it.
 which is an indication of our stunted mental development.

so i am for your freedom to kiss and show public display of
affection wherever and whenever as long as i have my
freedom to look sideways and ignore the show.
