    India though being the birthplace of the ancient science of sex, it is really a matter
    of shame that the post British India, considers it a taboo, to talk and discuss it in
    the public. Like many other ancient scriptures and technologies that were all
    initiated by India, but are now used and further developed by the western world,
    India, in this case too only boasts itself of having just invented this, but, with little
    implications in their modern life. Like the Vedas, Upansihadas, Ayurveda, Yoga,
    Mathematics, Kamasutra or the science of sex, had also developed in this part of
    the world first, but, is considered obscene in present day India. What is even more
    insane is that there are numerous, monuments, buildings of the ancient and
    medieval history still present in this country, which openly depicts sex in the form
    of sculptures and paintings, and are popular tourist destinations, but watching
    the same over electronic media has been labelled illicit.
