We all love going to our nearby theaters and watching a drama, dont we? Some of us like comedy, some prefer the historic ones, others are involved in acting. Recently, in India, a Mumbai based director, penned an adaptation of an American play. It is called 'Agnes Of God'. It is about a 'nun' who gets pregnant. The ticket sales for the play, which was scheduled to begin from Monday, have currently been put on a hold. REASON : The Catholics Bishop Conference of India thinks that the drama might hurt the religious sentiments of the people. They say nuns live a life of celibacy, and have been portrayed in a wrong manner. Now, don't take me otherwise, but how can one completely deny the possibility of a women getting pregnant, just because she's a Nun? I really, really wish to get some views on this one, and please correct me if i am wrong. Is the ban justified??

Any religious issue is touchy ...I personally feel that the so called rationalists should be careful while depicting any religious issues in a multi religious country like ours.We all know how over sensitive people have become now..

The vow of celibacy is kind of obsolete in reality. As long as you keep the matter hidden, no one will know you have children. And even if it gets exposed, it doesn't create a storm cause people have other things to worry about than judging a person by a vow of celibacy.
