Leaving aside talks of culture, morality and other dicey terms, how about being plain logical for once? We barely go and chase guys peeing along roadside, do we? Or the guy spitting on the roads or littering around. Then what’s the big deal if we spot a couple holding hands, hugging or displaying affection towards each other. Obviously getting overtly affectionate at a public place is sure to grab the eyeballs and might lead people to feel a bit awkward; that is true for every nation in the world. But a peck on the cheek or lips; is it just too much for us to handle? And why classify love into separate genres. It is like as if there were a love manufacturing factory somewhere and different classes of love are being developed there. A mother’s love is different from a father’s love. A love for a sister is different than that for a brother. Similarly a love for a spouse is a different class altogether. Our definition of love is clichéd. When a mother kisses her boy, it is out of “love” and “affection”. It is our feelings that are described by our actions. And so, when two lovers kiss it is still “love” and “affection” at play. Why do we adjudge them immoral and the act obscene? Love is unconditional and knows no discrimination. It is our mind that makes a perfectly respectful and genuine act of love seem vulgar.
