Gounder Brownie’s post ‘Eye Candy‘ struck a chord.
If you are a woman, have you ever shared pictures of George Clooney or Brad Pitt, Hrithik Roshan or anybody else (though not Salman Khan I hope!), and claimed absolute rights on finding them drool worthy because you shared their pictures first? Have you sulked because somebody disagreed with you over their drool-worthiness?
Then maybe you would agree with this?
What I like most about these books is the way in which the women talk about the men. To be precise, the way they check them out in a non-Twilight and Indian way. And without making any big statement about it, break the whole pathi-vratha notion that a lot of people seem to have about Indian women.
the discussion was on violence against women and why it happens. This portly auntyji declared that women were to blame because if a man were to see a naked woman, he gets ‘excited in his brain’ while if a woman were to see a naked man, nothing happens in her brain. And this, she said grandly, is Science. Clearly, she’d never been in a room with 54 girls watching Eric Bana and Brad Pitt lunge at each other in Troy. I think that scene must have been played in our BA Lit class a million times because we were studying the Iliad and needed err…motivation. [Eye Candy]
If you agree with Gounder Brownie, then why do you think so many people, including some women claim otherwise?
And is there any chance that you or someone you know might prove GB’s suspicions right (when she responded to my suggestion that we tag women bloggers to answer the questions above) – “Maybe someone will even find the Shravan Kumar type hot ;)”
If you are a woman reading this post, please consider yourself tagged. You are even free to claim that Salman Khan is hot. Even if that hurts my sentiments, it’s a free country. If women have the right to like Shravan Kumar, why not Salman Khan or Shakti Kapoor?
Do tag atleast five more women or else it would be assumed that Shravan Kumar is the guy who makes your hearts beat faster.
