This little piggie... 

A few days ago, Adrants got its chuddies in a knot about the image on this promotional website, which features a Bharata Natyam dancer. Her hands are in what the site calls "a pose called the Hanover High Shocker," which, apparently, has, erm, deeper meanings in America. We left a comment (the first one there), and now we see the, er, debate has carried on.

Go show them which finger is which, kids.

hey peter, i read your reactions in the adrants thing. c'mon, don't you think you were being a little harsh on them? I know we're all defenders and ambassadors of the motherland but...! If some firang came and made a huge public speech in which he kept using the word (i hate to write this, believe me) gandu, because it meant something nice in his language, there would be a few raised eyebrows. The youngsters would laugh. The oldies would frown. And someone would politely ask the man to find a synonym next time round.

P.S. For what it's worth, i love reading your blog. Whenever my little son is asleep, it's lovely to read some good writing. Am i posting this way too late? I don't have time to read everyday!

It's never too late, Joyce.
Glad you like the blog.

And yes, point taken. All I was trying to say was that the hysterical reactions, the ones that assumed this could only mean one thing, were being a tad, um, non-inclusive is the correct PC term?

Perhaps my choice of words here - I was trying to raise a laugh, to be honest - indicated otherwise.
