The MMS clip

Everyone, at least if you're staying in India right now, must know which clip I am talking about. After being the talk of Delhi, and then probably the entire country, it finally managed to shift focus from the school concerned to an IIT. Quite expectedly, the fire which was on its way to die out a much deserved death was provided with a fresh dose of fuel. It was very saddening to find a final-year student (from IIT-Kgp) getting involved in the whole issue. What was even more shocking was the fact that he hadn't even been conscious that what he was doing is a very grave crime according to the penal code. For that matter, I, and I am sure many others in the IIT campuses would find it very disconcerting that a seemingly inconsequential activity that almost all of us indulge in is an offence for which we could be even sentenced to two years rigorous imprisonment.

For, though most of us may not share or distribute porn over the internet or not peddle it commercially, we are guilty of having been involved in the distribution of such 'offensive' material on our campus LANs. Many students have also mailed it through the net to their friends outside their campuses. In fact there are computers on the LAN that are known to share just porn and the total amount of it on the LAN at any given time could be in tens of GBs.
And so we have got so numbed by now that somehow the apparent severity of the whole thing fails to register with us.

Of course the first step taken by the college authorities was to expel the student who had just one semester left to complete his course. I am not sure if that was the right thing to do, but in recent times IIT authorities, and I find this happening across all of them, have become very panicky as far as the media is concerned. The first thing they do is to wash their hands off the issue, and the student.

Dear Bloggers,
Permit me to comment being a non IITian.
The MMS issue is revolving around power,sex and money. Technology is no doubt the culprit.
But the way the whole issue is being diverted towards the Bazzee.com and IIT is not fair. IIT or DPS is part of our society. They are not extraordinary humans. The issue police is tackling and the technological challenges are worth need attention.

You may visit my blog on the issue.

Thanks .

The vague indian legal system is also part of the problem. It allows you to have porn but not sell or create it. Now that is sort of puzzling too.

DPS = Dead Poet's Society?
Somehow, I do find an analogy between the characters of the movie and the repressed sexual beings that our youth is.
