Before anyone starts taking cudgels on me for the title, let me clarify! This post is intended as an expose of only the new breed of devil-may-care, self-styled, prurient purveyors like Pratibha Ray (Yajnaseni The Story of Draupadi), Pradip Bhattacharya and writers in such as Indrajit Bandhopadhyay and Satya Chaitanya. No wonder most of these pseudo-intellectuals seem to hail from West Bengal or Kerala, the two communism infested states. Since communism is also known to be quite irreverent to any tradition, it comes as little shock that it is a breeding ground for such warped minds. Even more alarming is the shameless support they receive from some arguably well informed Indian literary circles as well as the ever publicity hungry establishment.

It is good that we have such strong sentinels of Indian tradition and folklore such as Dr. Indulata Das, who can bring to light the abyss to which many of these so-called acclaimed writers have taken Indian literature. But we need more such people and an active movement to prevent abject distortion of hoary Indian scriptures and literature in the name of fanciful flights of imagination or unbridled modern thought. Even though there's a lot of hue and cry against press censorship, I feel it's time we ought to impose severe literary censorship to prevent such elite rakes from twisting the tale(s) to their toxic tastes, so to say.
