(The Hindu)   Harlequin translates M&B romances into four Indian local languages. "At a time when 'provocative' mannequins are being banned because they could promote 'wrong acts', the availability and popularity of these translated versions only seems like irony"   (thehindu.com) divider line 41

You can't legislate morality.

"Oh my goodness" Akshiata cried out as Nimesh aimed his habukkuk on her red dot.

Meh, everybody knows it's the Hindus buying these as Muslims can't read.

Instead of "Bodice Rippers", will they be referred to as "Sari Unwrappers"?

There won't be any progress in that country until someone translate the Kama Sutra from English into Indian languages.

And then Mohit said "would you kindly do the needful and blow me where the pampers nappies are."

As a formally literate tween before the internet, I can attest that there is no sex in Harlequin romance books, you have to find the Anais Nin.

No, 'choli rippers' will do just fine.

"Ooooooohhhhhhhh," the oafish jungli groaned, "Sweet Mint Julep!"

"Thank you, come again!" The Desi girl brightly chirped.

I'd rescue her on my white steed, with my long blond locks flowing over my rippled, muscular chest while my turgid member pressed into her heaving bosom.

Wait, what was I saying?

Native Americans aren't Indians. There. I just cleared up a 500 year old misconception. You're welcome.

They're just smutbooks now.

M&B? Like Milton Bradley? Ugh, weren't they satisfied with inflicting that crappy Battleship movie on the international market? Now they expect people to read tepid love stories about the wacky Operation guy falling for that sultry pink peg driving the hot orange convertible in the Game of Life?

/I've played that game, and that pink peg ain't all that. Her trim little body is nothing but plastic, just like Nicki Minaj.

Just so long as they aren't called "Bonfire Jumpers."

Jagdish? What about Lonny (Larry), Mohammed, Clayton, and Sydney?

So which is the stronger factor here, hypocrisy or the disproportionate noise produced by a minority of the easily-offended?

Um, Harlequin eventually moved with the times.  They have several lines now, and they acquired their racier competitor Silhouette.

Sure, she looks good. But how does she smell? And is she a completely arrogant biatch or just a mildly arrogant biatch?

Visual appeal is only a small fraction of the considerations when choosing a partner.

But yes, she's pretty.

The British line they acquired--that actually makes sense.

I always find it rather ironic that the nations with the strictest, religion based sex laws usually have some of the biggest populations.

India, especially, since they are responsible for the Kama Sutra, -- the Book of Love.
