Changing times?

A DNA op-ed by Neeta Kolhatkar, on the Pune “Customs officials’ porn party” raid

These are private lives. Who sleeps with whom, who goes for an orgy, is a private affair. In the case of the customs officials, these were all adults. None of the girls claimed they were forced into any sexual act. It was mutual consent. All the customs officials and girls are above 18. Yet, the middle class believes they have the right to decide what sort of behaviour should be allowed, and what shouldn’t.

I would like to think that Indian newspapers talking about privacy means the times are changing. But I am a cynic. Hence, no.
