India's young men conservative, confused in sex

NEW DELHI -- For a group that's grown up in the land of the Kamasutra, most young Indian men remain a conservative -- and often confused -- lot when it comes to sex, according to a survey published this week.

One statistic in the survey of young mens' sexual attitudes published in the India Today magazine showed that 63 percent of those polled said they expected their future wives to be virgins.

But while the majority of men polled expect their wives to have remained celibate before tying the knot, 46 percent said they have had premarital sex, and 47 percent said sex was very important in their lives.

Some 34 percent said they would have sex "anytime, anywhere."

The survey, by AC Neilsen-Org-Marg for India Today, polled 2,559 unmarried men between the ages of 16 and 25 in 11 Indian cities.

Much of India remains relatively traditional when it comes to sex, especially with regard to premarital sex. In many parts of the country, even talking about sex is still considered taboo. But attitudes are slowly changing and annual sex surveys have become a regular feature in Indian magazines.

Half of those polled in the India Today survey said women who wore revealing clothes were sexually liberated, and nearly 62 percent said they watched pornographic films with friends.

The survey also looked at attitudes toward homosexuality.

Although homosexual sex is a crime in India -- and prejudices remain widespread -- 37 percent of men surveyed said they'd had at least one homosexual experience.

LOL. I guess I am not so special after all. I can certainly identify with the Indian men. Perhaps men all over are pretty much the same when it comes to sex and women.

For India truckers, AIDS is a 'white man-only' disease

LUCKNOW, India -- An official HIV-AIDS study in northern India has found that a frightening number of truckers believe the disease can only afflict white people.

"The truck drivers feel AIDS is a foreign disease and they are safe... that the disease does not affect Indians, only white people," said Nagendra Singh, who headed the survey in India's most populous state of Uttar Pradesh.

The study, released this week, was carried out over six months and involved interviews with 252 truckers, considered one of the highest risk groups due to their easy access to cheap sex in roadside brothels.

"Eighty-two percent of them said they have heard about AIDS and have read about it in hoardings along the highways, but they think it's a foreign disease," said Singh, who conducted the survey on behalf of the state government's transport and health ministries.

Singh said the misperception may be because there was no catchy Hindi-language translation for AIDS.

The study also found 27 percent of truckers had various other sexually-transmitted diseases. Over half had a history of such diseases, while 40 percent admitted to having passed on the disease to their wives.

State officials in Uttar Pradesh, of which Lucknow is the capital, fear some three-quarters of them may be infected with HIV.

According to a nationwide study last year, the three million long-haul truckers plying India's 8,000-kilometer highway network are 10 times more likely to be infected with HIV than other population groups.

The HIV prevention advocacy arm of one of the country's largest trucking companies, Transport Corp of India, has also said only 11 percent of the truckers use condoms.

India has 5.7 million people living with HIV/AIDS -- the highest figure in the world, ahead of South Africa where the figure stands at 5.5 million, according to the Geneva-based agency UNAIDS.

Separatist moral crusader detained in Kashmir

SRINAGAR, India -- A leading hardline woman separatist in revolt-hit Indian Kashmir was detained as she raided a cybercafe, police said, as part of her morality crusade in the main city of Srinagar.

"We have detained Aasiya Andrabi and five members from her party as they raided a cybercafe in downtown Srinagar," a police spokesman said.

Andrabi, head of the separatist Dukhtaran-e-Milat, or Daughters of Faith, has formed squads in the Muslim-majority state to raid brothels, cybercafes and other places where she says "immoral activities are carried out".

In a break with the past, when attitudes towards mixing between the sexes were more conservative, younger people in Kashmir are frequently seen dating in restaurants and walking in parks, raising the group's ire.

"We will expose those indulging in immoral activities," the 41-year-old Andrabi, who wears a head-to-toe veil, told people before storming the cafe.

The husband of Andrabi, a fiery speaker who has in the past voiced admiration for Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, is in jail on charges of being a militant.

Last year, she advertised a mobile telephone number for people to call "whenever you are convinced a man or woman has entered some place to commit adultery".

Adultery is illegal in the state and carries a potential jail term.

Andrabi was jailed for two months in 2005 for carrying out a similar campaign.

The group had earlier smeared black paint on racy Bollywood film posters portraying women in revealing clothing. It has also campaigned for women to veil themselves fully.

The drive has been largely unsuccessful in a region which espouses a more liberal form of Islam.

Indian Kashmir has been gripped by a 17-year-old revolt against New Delhi's rule that has claimed over 44,000 lives by official count, and double that number by the separatists' tally.

Culture clash: Indian court orders Gere's arrest for "obscene" kiss

JAIPUR, India -- An Indian court ordered the arrest of Hollywood star Richard Gere Thursday for kissing Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty at an AIDS campaign event this month saying it was an obscene act committed in public.

Gere's repeated kisses on Shetty's cheeks at an event to promote AIDS awareness in New Delhi sparked protests in some parts of India, mostly by Hindu vigilante groups, who saw it as an outrage against her modesty and an affront to Indian culture.

The order by a court in the northern city of Jaipur came in response to a complaint by a local lawyer. The judge watched a video recording of Gere kissing Shetty and found him guilty of violating Indian laws against public obscenity, the lawyer, Poonam Chand Bhandari, said. The court also summoned Shilpa Shetty to appear on May 5, Bhandari said, adding that Gere was also ordered to be arrested.

Gere can be sent to jail for up to three months or fined or both for the crime if he is arrested. He is not in India now but can be held if he visits the country again. The Hollywood star is a devout Buddhist and a vocal supporter of the Tibetan cause and visits India frequently to meet the Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in northern India. He is also involved with charities looking after HIV-infected people and orphans, as well as AIDS prevention groups in the country.

Groups of men had burned and kicked straw effigies of Gere and Shetty in sporadic protests across the country after newspapers published the picture of the kiss on their front pages and TV channels aired visuals of the event.

Shetty, the winner of the "Celebrity Big Brother" reality TV show in Britain this year had said the kiss may have gone a "little overboard" but it was not obscene and the protests made India look regressive. She said Gere was only re-enacting his moves from the film "Shall We Dance" to entertain the audience at the AIDS event and communicate in a Bollywood style as he did not speak Hindi.

Many commentators had subsequently expressed their unhappiness at what they said were fringe groups making a mountain of a harmless peck on the cheek.

Indian man chained for defying father in marriage

KOLKATA, India -- Police in eastern India have rescued a Muslim man who had been shackled in chains for a month for marrying his childhood lover against the wishes of his father and village clerics, authorities said Friday.

Raghu Amin, 21, was locked in a dingy room by his father in a village in the state of West Bengal after he publicly announced his marriage to 18-year-old Sehnaaz Khatoon, who came from a poorer and lower class family, police said.

"He was chained throughout and even served food in this condition as punishment," said police officer Jay Biswas.

Police came to Raghu's rescue Thursday evening in Baduria village, 70 km north of the state capital Kolkata, after his wife lodged a complaint.

Raghu's father has been arrested on charges of wrongful confinement and police said they were looking for some village clerics who they suspected were also involved.

In India, most marriages are still arranged by parents of the bride and groom who often look for compatibility in religion, caste and class. Couples breaking from this tradition are sometimes ostracized by their families and even face violence.

Yes, this are typical examples of Indian attitudes towards sexual relations, HIV/AIDS and marriage. As I have stated in the Sex Education topic attitudes are changing slowly. The belief of the aforementioned truck drivers that AIDS is a white man's disease that does not affect Indian men is a typical example of the selective ideas we take from the West. I must note in this case however, that the average education level of truck drivers is very low because while it is human to only believe in what is convenient to you, anyone with a thought beyond the immediate would question why the government would put warnings against a disease if that disease only affects non-Indians?

But Indian men are very convinced of their own importance and superiority and I am not at all surprised about this.

Indian state moves to ban vibrating condoms

BHOPAL, India, June 20, 2007 (AFP) — A new condom with a vibrating ring has sparked a furore in a central Indian state, where ruling Hindu nationalists say it is a sex toy and should be banned.

The government of Madhya Pradesh, which earlier this year banned sex education in schools, said the 'Crezendo' condom was not an aid to family planning and AIDS prevention, adding its use could be "against Indian culture".

"Condoms, when used for pleasure with a device like a vibrator, become a sex toy, and sex toys are banned in India," asserted Kailash Vijayvargiya, public works minister in the state, ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"We will certainly ban the product if it is found to be violative of the law or even if its use is found to be against Indian culture," he said, adding that the government should "promote family planning and not sex toys".

"It should encourage yoga that helps conserve and increase energy," he said. "I am discussing it with the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan."

Crezendo condoms, launched on the Indian market about six months ago, include a tiny battery-powered vibrator attached to a ring which is designed to sit at the base of the condom.

Mukesh Gupta, the distributor of the product in the state, said Crezendos simply offered a novel way of encouraging safe sex in India -- which with its population of 1.1 billion has the largest number of HIV-AIDS cases worldwide.

"It is not a sex toy but simply a pleasure enhancer that is in great demand by the people," he said.

India introduces paan-flavoured condoms

NEW DELHI — A condom flavoured with the popular mixture of betel nut and tobacco known as paan is to go on sale in India, newspapers said Tuesday.

State-owned company Hindustan Latex has already tested the pungent and bitter mixture on their main market, sex workers, who preferred it to other flavours such as banana and chocolate, the Hindustan Times reported.

"The community loved it as most of the sex workers chew paan," Sanjeev Gaikwad, a director at advocacy group Family Health International who helped launch the new condom as part of HIV-AIDS prevention efforts, told the newspaper.

Varieties of betel nut, tobacco and often sweet and bitter pastes are mixed in a concotion called paan sold at street-side stalls across South Asia.

Aficionados chew the mixture wrapped in a leaf and then spit the red saliva onto the sidewalks or buildings that are adorned with the tell-tale stains.

The condoms will be sold to the public later this year, but sex workers will be given supplies immediately, the newspaper said.

India said earlier this month that the number of its people living with HIV-AIDS stands at two million to 3.1 million, sharply lower than earlier estimates, but vowed to spend billions to check a wider epidemic.

Previous estimates from India's National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) had put the HIV caseload at 5.2 million, while UNAIDS in 2006 estimated 5.7 million cases which would have been the highest in the world.

New book gives gruesome account of India girl killings

NEW DELHI, July 20, 2007 (AFP) — India's unwanted baby girls have been drowned in milk, burned alive in sealed mud pots or fed milk laced with poisonous seeds, but these days it is much easier to kill them in the womb.

These are some of the chilling anecdotes in a new book on how a traditional preference for sons in India has resulted in the extermination of generations of females.

India has only 927 females for every 1,000 males -- far lower than the worldwide average of 1,050 females -- and last year a report by UNICEF said India continued to lose almost 7,000 girls every day through abortions.

The British medical journal The Lancet has put the loss of females at 10 million over the past two decades.

"With technology making it easier to find out the gender of a foetus in earlier stages of pregnancy, these numbers will only increase," said journalist Gita Aravamudan, author of "Disappearing Daughters".

Aravamudan's new book is trying to give "a face to the issue" -- stories of women forced to endure successive pregnancies to produce male children, and of others forced to have up to four abortions in five years.

"One of the most disturbing revelations came from a midwife who said she had killed hundreds of newborns. She had lost count," the author said in an interview.

In India, sons are typically seen as breadwinners. According to Hindu tradition, a son is also supposed to light his parents' funeral pyre.

Girls are often viewed as a burden because of the matrimonial dowry demanded by a groom's family.
The deep-seated discrimination makes many women more determined to have a boy because they do not want their daughters to suffer the domestic abuse and hardships they faced, the book says.

"Better to send her straight to heaven rather than make her endure this beating and kicking around," one woman is quoted as telling the author.

Others said they had no choice.

"What do you want from me? What power do you think I have over my womb? None. Do I have the right to decide if I can keep the child if it is a girl? No," said another.

The author provides an equally grim account of how the practice has led to a cycle of abuse.
In some regions, an acute shortage of women has resulted in men buying brides and sharing them with their brothers. The book tells of Tripala Kumari, 18, whose husband killed her because she refused to have sex with his brothers.

Instances came to light of male foetuses dumped in dustbins by doctors who aborted them to make money after lying to parents that the child was a girl.

"Female infanticide is akin to serial killing. But female foeticide was more like a Holocaust. A whole gender is getting exterminated. It is a silent and smoothly executed crime which leaves no waves in its wake," Aravamudan writes.

The author said it was not an easy subject to tackle.

"Some of the communities had very militant people. There was a lot of hostility. They thought an outsider like me didn't have any right to question what for them is an accepted thing," Aravamudan said.

"There was total secrecy, a blank wall. I needed a lot of patience, you can't just go to someone and ask 'did you kill your girl?'," she said of the research which took her a year.

The solutions, Aravamudan said, are not easy.

In 1994, India introduced tough laws against tests to determine foetal gender for non-medical reasons, but rules are widely flouted by doctors in what activists say is a multi-million-dollar business.

The tests are done secretly and are often hard to prove. Doctors are widely viewed as pillars of the community, and authorities took 12 years to get their first conviction.

"Our laws against dowry and foeticide are excellent, but only on paper," the writer said.
In a gruesome discovery last month, dozens of tiny bones were found in the septic tank of a clinic belonging to a man posing as a doctor in Gurgaon, a wealthy suburb of the Indian capital.

The suburb is part of a state with one of the country's worst gender ratios -- just 820 females for every 1,000 males -- showing the preference for sons is deeply rooted even among families with high income and education levels.

The government continues to grapple for ideas, and this month announced plans to register all pregnancies.

According to India's minister for women and child development Renuka Chowdhury, the data would permit authorities to focus efforts on areas with a large gap between the number of pregnancies recorded and births.

The government has in the past announced plans to encourage people to abandon their daughters in government facilities rather than kill them.

But the successive plans have come under fire from critics who say it is not only intrusive but also bureaucratically impossible to keep an eye on all pregnancies in a country of 1.1 billion people.

Encouraging people to abandon their babies was a "ludicrous" idea, Aravamudan said, because it would encourage a belief that girls were unwanted.

"And most girls are killed before, and not after, they are born."

India TV sting on sex, DVDs and teacher was "set-up"

By Nita Bhalla

NEW DELHI, Sept 12, 2007 (Reuters) — At first sight it was a classic sting operation by a crusading journalist exposing an underworld in India involving prostitutes, pornographic CDs and a Delhi schoolteacher.

But on Wednesday police charged the journalist with inventing the accusations against the teacher, saying it was probably a debt vendetta, in a case that has raised questions about control and the quality of India's powerful and increasingly competitive media.

A growing number of private TV channels in India are in a ferocious competition for viewers after a decade of liberalisation in the media sector -- all in contrast to when Indians could only watch state-controlled broadcasters.

On Aug 30, a channel called Live India aired a report in which a girl claiming to be a student at a New Delhi school accused the teacher of blackmailing female students into prostitution by drugging them and making pornographic CDs.

The report led to hundreds of angry parents and residents flocking to the school premises, throwing stones and damaging nearby cars and buses.

The teacher, Uma Khurana, was attacked by the mob, who ripped off her clothes. She was arrested by police and sacked from her job based on the news report.

"The whole thing was a set-up," said Rajan Bhagat, a Delhi police spokesman.

"The reporter, Prakash Singh, appeared before court yesterday and has been charged with cheating, fabricating false evidence and conspiracy," he said.

The TV "sting" showed a girl sitting in a car with Singh, who posed as a client. She told him how students at the school were scared to talk about the sex racket.

But police said the girl was neither a student at the school nor a prostitute. Some reports said she was herself an aspiring journalist.

"Uma Khurana has nothing to do with organising any such prostitute racket," Bhagat said, adding it appeared to be a conspiracy against the middle-aged teacher, and that Singh was working with someone whom Khurana owed money to.

Singh or his lawyers were not immediately available for comment.

BROADCASTING WOES?


The scandal has brought into focus a controversial new broadcasting bill, which the government says will help regulate content of television news.

It will permit sting operations only if they are "warranted" to be in the public interest.

Critics say the bill is draconian and gives sweeping powers to the government to cripple the media through pre-censorship.

They point to the expulsion of 12 members of parliament in 2005 after they were shown on television taking or demanding cash bribes from undercover reporters.

Many journalists fear the recent fake sting operation could give more armour to the government to push through the bill.

"Before the government uses the exception to thrust its own set of motivated rules on us, let us in the industry admit that we need a code of conduct that we can all agree upon, and one that we draft ourselves," wrote Barkha Dutt, managing editor of NDTV 24X7 news channel, in a column in the Hindustan Times. "We must be ready for the scrutiny we subject others to. Because when the reporter becomes the story, the news takes a backseat."

TV sting reporter faces riot charge in India

NEW DELHI, Sept 26, 2007 (AFP) — An Indian television reporter accused of fabricating a sting operation has been charged with fomenting riots in the capital, police said Wednesday.

Journalist Prakash Singh was charged Tuesday with abetting rioting that erupted August 30 after a story was broadcast purporting to show a school teacher forcing female students into prostitution.

The government last Thursday imposed a one-month ban on the privately-run 24-hour news channel LiveIndia for broadcasting the programme.

"We are also investigating if the reporter had other ulterior motives than just framing the teacher," a police spokesman said.

Furious parents and supporters of supposed victims publicly stripped 42-year-old teacher Uma Khurana, damaged cars and attacked buildings after LiveIndia broadcast the 30-minute sting story.

LiveIndia officials said the reporter, who was arrested last week, had convinced editors the sting was authentic.

A young woman described as one of Khurana's victims who later turned out to be a professional actress has also been arrested.

Singh reportedly staged the sting to earn "instant recognition" in India's competitive media industry.

Yes, it was quite an upheaval last week about this situation. He should have known that it would case problems. People here get violent very quickly if they are outraged and he should get some severe reprimendation for his irresponsible actions.
