ALSO SEE: Smell The Kaapi

Chennai, December 5, 2010:
Last week witnessed scenes of unprecedented violence and mayhem across Tamil Nadu. The crisis was ignited by popular Tamil actor and TV anchorman Khushboothalingam. In a TV programme, he advised brides to stop assuming that their newly-wed husbands were necessarily virgins. The actor advised women to practise safe sex. Mr Khushboothalingam, it might be recalled, is an activist for AIDS awareness.

The actor's remarks created an instant uproar. Men all over the state protested against this slur on their morality. An irate businessman from Madurai said: "This is an insult that no self-respecting Tamil male will tolerate! Is the actor implying that some Tamil males actually have sex before marriage?" An official in Chennai fumed, "I'll have Khushboothalingam know some Tamil males are so pure they remain chaste even after marriage!"
