Selling sex toys is a punishable offense under section 292 of Indian penal code, as sex toys are considered an “obscene” product. Besides sex toys, any book, pamphlet, paper, writing, drawing, painting, representation, figure or any other object, is by the way also considered obscene by section 292 if it is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest. The punishment for the offense is up to two years in prison. )

Right Perspective | Gandhi’s Vision | Swachh Bharat

One day I was travelling with my 7 year old son. At a signal my son saw a “Clean India” billboard on the road side. He asked me why there is Gandhiji’s Spectacle on the logo. I asked him back “you tell why it is there?” He thought for a moment and then replied “ Papa I think Gandhiji always used to talk about cleanliness…so perhaps it is his vision” I smiled and said you are right beta. But the thought stuck with me. When I came across this “Swachh Bharat Short Film Festival” This thought again come to mind. Hence this film came into existence. Gandhiji, his spectacles, his vision and kid were the key words for me to develop the idea. I think until and unless we change our perspective about cleanliness, our acts will be accidental only. They will not be everlasting and part of our habit. All the time we are throwing garbage on the road. We don’t bother to look for a dustbin, which might not be far away. Somehow it is our habit we don’t register a dustbin. The moment we change our perspective we realize there are lot of dustbins all around us eating dust. So perhaps seeing through Gandhiji’s spectacles will change our mind set and make Gandhi’s India clean. Not to forget it is Clean India Mission’s logo also.
