As the Parzania controversy unfolds...

... and the dailies (such as they are) have all and sundry talking about it, why does no one ask, when such questions come up (remember Fanaa last summer?), why the heck does the world's largest democracy need a Censor Board?

Yes yes, neither Fanaa nor Parzania were "banned" in Gujarat by the board. It was worse. Sheer bullying and intimidation of the basest kind.

But why the heck is there such a board to begin with?

Ah that darned paternalistic Indian statism.
