Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper, complaining about the obscene cinema posters.


The Editor,

The Indian Express,

New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Time has come for the Government to take drastic steps to check the ever increasing display of obscene cinema posters which excite the sexual feelings in the on-lookers. Formerly such posters pertained to foreign films only. But now the infection has spread to the Indian film producing companies also. They vie with one another in the issue of posters that openly exploit the sexual instincts of the public.

Obscene and sensational posters have the effect of rousing sexual desires among the teen-agers prematurely. Amorous and passionate postures of the hero and the heroine shown on these posters do not fail to excite and inflame the passions of even the adults, to say nothing of teen-agers whose minds are so impressionable and sensitive. The semi-bare bosoms and the naked legs of the actresses and the voluptuous expressions on their faces, do not fail to be witch and stir even men above sixty. These posters are working havoc with the young and the old alike in our country. Such posters may not be objectionable in the context of English and American society where different moral standards obtain and where kissing and embracing in public are not a taboo. Semi-naked bodies of women in foreign countries are such a common and familiar sight that nobody takes notice of them in real life or on the posters. In the west, love making goes on in public. But things are quite different in India. We have orthodox standards of morality. We cannot allow the display of amorous cinema posters in our bazars and streets. They are a grave danger to the morals of our growing boys and girls.

Mr. Editor, you will be doing real service if you start a campaign against the open display of obscene cinema poster.

August 8, 20XX                                                                                                   

Yours faithfully

S.K. Singh
