Recently while in an animated discussion with my old colleagues at the United Services club bar, a friend of mine revealed that there was an Indian comic site that was ‘different’. We were all intrigued as about this comic site and questioned comic porn sites are normally associated with the West and Russia.
The Comic Strip
The fact is, that there is an Indian comic site titled ‘Savita Bhabhi’. A creation of an Indian origin Puneet Agarwal who resides in the UK, the site has caught the imagination of the Indian public en masse. In fact in just the first few months, there were over 60 million visitors to the site.
The site is a cartoon strip featuring the sexual adventures of a young Indian ‘Bhabhi’, meaning sister in law. In India, for most men there is a fixation for the Bhabhi, perhaps which is the reason Agarwal the creater of the site chose a Bhabhi theme for his cartoon. On going through the site, a visitor will find it pretty tame in comparison to some of the steamy western cartoons. But despite this the site gained tremendous viewership.
Adventures of Savita Bhabhi
The site features a number of sex-escapades of the ‘Bhabhi’. The cartoonist represents Savita as a bored housewife, who indulges in sexual escapades in the absence of her husband Ashok Patel while he is busy in his office
She has amorous encounters with the Milk man and even a cousin from the United States. The cartoons build up slowly and the steamy portions are kept at the end.
In real terms the sex escapades of Savita Bhabhi are pretty harmless and certainly not a corrupting influence. But you must be 21 to access the site.
Popularity of the Site
Savita Bhabhi is also available in printed form of comics. It is translated into many languages and is very popular. But on going through the comics and the site on the net one can’t help feeling that though it is titillating, it can no way be termed obscene or vulgar. You can even access online videos of this theme. Thus it is harder to reconcile to the fact, that the Indian Government has banned the site.
