Richard Gere & Shilpa Shetty

Did Richard Gere go too far?
Yes! Claims Poonal Chandra
Committed was ‘‘an obscene act’’
Statement your ‘Honour’ as fact

Affectionate displays are ‘taboo’
Not a subject to be argued
in conservative India – No Sir!
Should he have kissed her?

Effigies of Gere were burnt
Protestors - presumed angry
Are there lessons to be learnt?
from world’s biggest democracy

Has the misery of controversy
cast a long shadow over Shetty?
It was, umm just the other day
Frenzied storms stirred in U.K

For many not in the know
Shilpa was bullied
on ‘Big Brother’ T.V show
which she won eventually

Complaint is to be heard on 18th
Two other lawyers filed papers
18th is vague terminology seen
It’ll be heard, that’s what matters…
