New Delhi: A few photos of the famed pre-Holi celebrations of Rabindra Bharati University, West Bengal, have gone viral. And for the wrong reasons, though many on social media are all for freedom of expression (or expletives). Some female students were photographed with expletives written on their back in gulal, while some male students had cuss words written on their chest. The photos have posed several questions on Bengali culture, more so as it was a celebration at the university named after Rabindranath Tagore — at the very campus which is housed at Tagore’s Jorasanko residence. Some of the vulgar words were prefixed to Tagore’s songs. Also Read - 7th Pay Commission Latest News: Central Govt Announces Holi Gift For Employees Based in Mathura And Vrindavan, Doubles Their HRA
The varsity authorities claimed that those flaunting ‘obscene’ words on their body were from outside. According to reports, the authorities have lodged a police complaint against four men and four women.

While many found this ‘disgusting’, to many the incident doesn’t deserve moral policing.
