See no evil. Do no evil. While not getting into the semantics of what qualifies as evil, some TV channels in India have taken to blurring body parts which they deem “objectionable”.  The following images have been taken by viewers of certain channels who have resorted to such censorship. Cleavage blurred by Romedy Now   Cleavage blurred by Movies Now                                                                                                                                                                                           Image Courtesy: Reddit India                                                                                                                                                                                     How it affects the psyche of a viewer aside from making them more “curious” may be debatable.But what if some of the channels above resorted to carrying paintings by some distinguished Indian artists? Going by how the blurring of “objectionable body parts” happens, we at TNM decided to help the channels if they ever decided to air these paintings. Here are a few paintings which have now ceased to be objectionable to any audience: Mother and Child by Raja Ravi Varma  Seduction of Vishwamitra by Raja Ravi Varma  Fresh from bath by Raja Ravi Varma       Girl playing with a ball by Raja Ravi Varma    By MF Hussain Mother and Child by Rukmini Varma Mohini Beguiling Bhasmasura by Rukmini Varma Vishwamitra Menaka by Rukmini Varma  Original paintings by Raja Ravi Varma,  MF Hussain and Rukmini Varma.
