Hypocrites

I am just wondering aloud here. We Indians wrote KamaSutra. No doubts about that. Our grandfather's generation, to put in S.Ve.Shekar's words, were of the "Muttai ittu kunju parikkum" (raising a brood of kids) generation. With all this background, how did we become such hypocrites, that the society vehemently raises up to censure even remote talks on the subject of sex-education ?
What made the society, and any average Tom, Dick and Harry, think that they are the protectors of the so-called culture ?
Me thinks that the Mughal invasion lead to this kind of hypocrisy. Any enlightened soul out there who can throw some light on this ?

    I think, it is a combination of many things. Not just the Moghul invasion. There are so many things attached to this idea of hypocrisy. Things evolve over a period of time. And we a society, whether we accept it or not, have always been a prejudiced society.

    Yes, while it is true that we have always been a prejudiced society, I somehow think we were not a hypocritical society ;-)
