Here is the video of the wardrobe malfunction of the Belgian model Debbie, at the India Fashion week in Delhi. This was during Rajesh Pratap Singh’s line up.

And here is the photo of what happened.

Once again, I think the media made a ruckus out of the whole issue. It wasn’t such a big deal, and I’m sure it’ll cool down soon enough.

Kangana Ranaut who shot to fame with Gangster and Woh Lamhe didn’t mind doing some seriously sensational scenes. In Woh Lamhe there is a scene in which she throws off her panty at Shiney Ahuja. That shows the actress is lion hearted when comes to doing bold scenes.

Now she is doing a film titled Fashion under the direction of Madhur Bhandarkar. In this film Kangana is playing the character inspired from the real life story of Model Gitanjali Nagpal.

If the buzz is to be believed Kangana appears top less in this film! Taking a cue from Carol Gracia’s infamous wardrobe malfunction Madhur has canned a similar scene on Kangana where she drops her top while walking on the ramp. Kangana didn’t use a body double for this scene!

Madhur is not willing to reveal too many details about this scene. If this scene successfully comes out of Censors, no doubt Kangana is going to create ripples all over!

Last week at an AIDS Awareness Campaign in Jaipur, India, a small group of right-wing Indians managed to shift the attention from fighting the spread of HIV to an inane case of obscenity against Hollywood actor Richard Gere.

Gere, who kissed famous Indian actress Shilpa Shetty on the cheek, now has a warrant out for his arrest due to his violation of obscenity laws.

Here is the video, for those of you who missed it on the TV.

Most Indians can agree on the absurdity of this case. Deeming Gere as obscene and vulgar is the work of a minority of fundamentalists trying to create a commotion and hardly the views of the entire country.

In Gere’s defense, he was mimicking a dance routine from his recent film “Shall We Dance.” He has since apologized for his behavior not realizing the media attention he would receive.

But it’s not just the Indian media that have blown the situation out of proportion. Friday, Gere’s kiss was all over American broadcasts as well, giving India negative publicity.

This silly news story depicts a very inaccurate display of Indian society and culture. Stories such as this falsely makes Indians appear narrow minded and prudish in their behavior.

I’m so tired of American media wrongfully characterizing the Indian public. Several times in the past, American media has focused on stories focusing on just a fraction of India’s one billion inhabitants.

For years I’ve been angered by news images of Indian poverty acting as if primitive village life is the norm for the entire subcontinent.

Oprah Winfrey occasionally features stories revealing the mistreatment of women, insinuating all women in India are uneducated, battered and treated as slaves.

These types of imperialist broadcasts depict Indians as people begging for enlightenment when that is hardly the case.

India is a thriving nation and has made so many invaluable contributions, and Indian culture is prevalent across the world.

Yoga, which has ancient origins in India, is practiced by people all across this country. Indian spices and cuisine are hugely popular. Americans order gallons of Indian chi tea.

I see Indian fashion all over campus. Brightly colored Indian bags replicating saris, traditional Indian dress, are carried by several girls. Colorful ornate jewelry has been a staple in India fashion and is only now becoming popular in this country.

Some of the brightest minds have come out of India contributing to the fields of science and technology. The computer software industry is booming in India. The educated, literate, successful and cultured Indian is a better stereotype than what the media likes to display.

I wish the media would broadcast a broader image of India and all its splendor. A few protestors trying to get attention in India coupled with a ravenous American media is a combination for misrepresentation.

India is not a primitive society that is scandalized by a kiss on the cheek by a Hollywood actor.

While India may pride itself in being a moral country, this is a gross exaggeration of the people.

Pune Rave Party Photos

April 4, 2007

Here are some pictures from the Rave Party in Pune that was stopped by the Police Raid. Also information about the drugs being seized and the racket behind it is in the news pretty regularly.

Just incase any of you are thinking, what these pictures are doing on Stylelane…..I would like to point out the designer wear these people are wearing. (Hot girls. Good clothes. Cameras : Good life ).

Now, new photos (pics) from the party have emerged. The authenticity of the pictures cannot be gauranteed, but these are the images that are making the rounds on the Internet since the last one week. From what I hear, there are videos from the party as well, somewhere on Youtube.

Disclaimer: I do not have ownership of these photos, nor have any proof of authenticity. Source for these photos, are random forums and blogs on the internet. If you know someone from the Pune rave party that the cops caught, maybe you can show them these, ask for authenticity and comment on the blog regarding the same.

Here are the Pune Rave Party photos. Hope this does not become an other scandal. We already have the Carol Gracias video which was a wardrobe malfunction creating enough hype.

The good thing(ahem) is that there is no nudity in any of the following pictures. Less chances of a scandal, i.e.
