What’s curious about the scene is the manner in which the villager is looking on, unsure of himself as Shakira grooves on “Hips don’t lie”.While we have imbibed obscenity as Salsa in our urban lives the rural folks are still in two minds.

To me the picture is symbolic of the crossroads at which Indian morality stands today.

To be or not to be is finally the big question …..
