Wardrobe malfunctions become bigger issue than poverty in India 

I have always blogged very highly of and even its politicians, but spending time in the legislative council arguing over the at is an exercise that benefits few.
   As Amodini wrote in her Review Room blog:

Now reading the [article], one could be forgiven for thinking this was a matter of state importance, you know, akin to the other problems of starvation, malnutrition deaths, abject , bride-burning, dowry, eve-teasing, molestation etc. But no, this is a case of a losing her clothing while on the ramp. …
   The culture where one split-second image of a woman’s bottom on television causes a Legislative assembly debate, but scores of stories of molested, killed at birth, or murdered engender no response?

   To the legislators and police officers of : don’t fall into this trap. Having the and its go on and on about it after the gaffe is quite enough for one decade.
   I somehow think the of most is strong enough to weather one accident, and this wasn’t exactly shown in front of Superbowl-type audiences. Next issue, please.

If I dont comment on this one then I got to be blind.
I agree with you on this matter. But I dont think it will be tolerated with the amount of media attention the incident has recieved and with the fashion week under strict eyes. I doubt if the moral policing guys will even let it go on  
Oh dear. It’s a shame if Fashion Week were cancelled because of this, as it has really brought Indian fashion to international attention (and cancellation would go against the whole Brand India campaign). However, you are right: hype breeds a lot of finger-pointing, often negative.  
Yeah I also wont want it to get cancelled as it shows other countries that India is not far on the horizon but on their ports. But we cant be sure about some useless moral policing I believe in moral policing but they are too unwanted at some places.

And i dont think they will cancel it. It has the support of the whole bollywood stars fraternity  
True: everything in moderation. When things start getting out of hand, like the furore over this “wardrobe malfunction” (don’t the Americans come up with the nuttiest terms?!), then the protesting voices go a little too far.
   Like you, I don’t think it will be cancelled, and the whole world pays notice to when India has fashion weeks these days … It would be foolish for it to stop, given it raises the country’s entire profile. The good outweigh the bad hugely.  
I doubt that this sort of thing can close down the fashion week. This, though gives them more fodder to put checks (on women) in place, supposedly to prevent "hurt sensibilities".  
But some of Inida's own moral policing guys dont like India shining it happens in all countries I guess but its a bit more in India  
Yes, envy can be something that prevents progress, regardless of where one is from. India is certainly not alone on that front.
