1. Why dont we permit ppl to go nude? Its against morality - right? Everything cannot be a matter of choice. You see, Beauty contests are a ploy to sell us lipsticks and shampoo when what we need is food and education.

That is why there is a law against public nudity. I am sorry .. thats where the law draws the line.

2. You say that "as long as it is not against the law" - I am asking that we pass a law banning them

Good luck.

3. You say "If they want to win fame and money by showing of their bodies, more power to them". Im not against women having fame and power. But do it a way that does not degrade womanhood - See Mo Theresa, M. Curies, etc

Who are you (or me) to decide right and wrong way of getting fame. What if a girl's main asset is her looks? She doesnt have much brains or skills. You are saying that she cant use those looks to her advantage. Thats rubbish.

4. Beauty contests are discriminatory to Muslim women who have to wear the veil. Ever thought of their rights? Just for the sake of 2000 odd participants, you cannot ignore 200 mill Muslims and a majority of right thinking Hindus

So Muslim women should stop wearing veils because 400 mill Hindu women dont wear them. QED. Arre baba, to each his own. You wanna wear a veil, wear one. You wanna go to a beauty contest, go to one. You wanna compete in a BC , compete.

5. Ideas have to be in consonance with thye culture. Tell me - are BCs in consonance with Indian culture??

Yes they are. Indian culture had no problem with scantily clad women. See all the statues in various places.

6. Even most women are against BCs

And the proof of this statement would be ...???

7. Must we spend so much of national resources in a poor country like ours??

The contests earn money. Both forex and stirs up local economies. Trust me, if it wasnt financially viable, it wouldnt happen.

In sum - let women have power the proper way - not this shamagammy way plz.

Once again, how can you decide what is the right and wrong way ?

Are you suggesting every woman wear a burkha?

I think this should be in "Anything else".

Looking in "Cultural influences" and saying "Indian politcs" prove that I could be eligible for the membership of LLKC......

Smelli,

As long as women are not being forced into it, why should anyone object? If they want to win fame and money by showing of their bodies, more power to them. They are exercising a freedom of choice. As long as it is not against the law, it is fine.

1. Why dont we permit ppl to go nude? Its against morality - right? Everything cannot be a matter of choice. You see, Beauty contests are a ploy to sell us lipsticks and shampoo when what we need is food and education.


Nudity is not able to sell anything.....because after that everybody can see only ONE thing
Really, It is said clothes make a person.
Without any clothes, there would be no viewers.
Basic Human mentality. One is interested till there is some suspense, not after.



2. You say that "as long as it is not against the law" - I am asking that we pass a law banning them


Why???? control me nahi rehta hain kya?



3. You say "If they want to win fame and money by showing of their bodies, more power to them". Im not against women having fame and power. But do it a way that does not degrade womanhood - See Mo Theresa, M. Curies, etc


Again, correct me ladies if i ma wrong, ONE thing that a lady likes to do is SHOW OFF her assets. That is her inherent nature. How can u stop this?


4. Beauty contests are discriminatory to Muslim women who have to wear the veil. Ever thought of their rights? Just for the sake of 2000 odd participants, you cannot ignore 200 mill Muslims and a majority of right thinking Hindus


Mohammad should have thought of that before ordering womenfolk to wear a veil compulsarily.
viase to bolte hain he thought of everything.
How come he did not think of this?
Why don't u propose a FIRST ammendment to the Qoran?
oops sorry! can't do that. 'cause that is the final word of God.
Sorry.


5. Ideas have to be in consonance with thye culture. Tell me - are BCs in consonance with Indian culture??

Indian = Hindu?
Then YES.
Hindu women were always free to wear what they wanted & romp around before the advent of the muslim chewtiyaas.


6. Even most women are against BCs

Not the ones I know.


7. Must we spend so much of national resources in a poor country like ours??

Good point.
But organizing such events in fact attract money from around the world.


In sum - let women have power the proper way - not this shamagammy way plz.

Women are free to do what they will. Nobody forces them or nobody prevents them.

Dear Sir,
You might be having some mistake. I sent you one certified cheque so there should not be such problem.

Either you are getting a first cheque to cash so u don't know how to present in bank or you are not the right person to cash my cheque.

Thank you.

I really dont care

The women who participate do it on their own accord.

The participants are not in any way representative of the entire female population.

So what's the big deal if some beautiful women compete on basis of their good looks and figure?

Those who wish to enjoythese events are welcome to and those who dont can close their eyes Its not as if some terrorism is being committed in such competitions.
