Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar, a filmdom married couple, appear at a fashion show. Ms Khanna pretends to unbutton her husband's trousers. Neither was I at the show nor have I seen any clips of it, but from the one photograph I've seen of this incident, the parties involved look as if they are enjoying themselves.
As if they are happy.
But this was too much for one Anil Nair, who was annoyed enough by their happiness to go the law about it. The actors, he complained to the police, had indulged in "indecent, vulgar and obscene behaviour". The Vakola police have since registered a FIR against the couple.
I don't know Khanna, Kumar, nor Nair. But I do know something that HL Mencken once wrote. The always caustic American writer defined Puritanism this way: "The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."
Yep: It haunts Anil Nair, that fear.
So I'd like to say: I'm happy. Forgive me, Shri Nair, for frightening you some more.
