Here comes the saviour

Best quote ever (today):
The Minister of Information and Broadcasting shall not sit with his eyes shut if the honour of the Indian woman is compromised.
So says Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi, as quoted in this story, about Maxim allegedly morphing a picture of, hold your breath, Brinda Karat.

Instantly I'm rushing to the stands -- not.

Update: I'm not taking the morphing lightly, by and by, but I feel that's a matter for the legal system, not for any minister of blah-blah-blah -- for if you give him discretion that can be used in an ad-hoc manner, it will be. That's how moral policing grows.
