Chennai - Flesh trade !

All day today, I have been watching news about a 'Sting' operation in Chennai on Headlines Today.  What's funny is that  they call Chennai 'The Cultural Capital' !  

Culture -  I have no idea what the definition is, but I have to say that 'Prostitution' and 'Dances' have been a part of Indian culture for several centuries now.  In fact who are 'Devdasis'?  

This is not new to Chennai.  Everyone knows that these things have been going on forever !  So why now?  

Here is what India Today says:
This is the unseen, unknown side of Chennai. The city which loves its bharatnatyam and carnatic music is slowly turning into a den of bar dancers and prostitutes...

 'Unseen', 'Unknown'... come on  you  jokers
