In recent days, quite a few ladies have landed themselves in trouble over their remarks on pre-marital sex. First it was a Tamil actress who faced the wrath of some self appointed culture police. Then another actress had to face the heat on account of the support given to the first. Now the latest to join the ranks is a sportsperson, Sania Mirza.

Sania has demonstrated her abilities on the tennis court where her rivals are to face volleys off the racquet. But this time her verbal volleys on the issue of pre-marital sex have met with tough resistance from the opponents.
I agree that everyone has the right to have and say their views but something on sex is always regarded as a taboo. It is even more of a sin when it is uttered by a personality who is well known and is seen as a role model for others. The worst offence is committed when such statements come from ladies.

I don't have the faintest idea of the reason behind these utterances from the tennis player. A 20 year old Indian girl speaking about the s** word is something that is sure to raise the eyebrows in a society like India.

Sania concentrate on tennis and leave these things to people to decide for themselves.
