Just How Offensive Are Ringtones?
from the apparently,-they-should-be-banned dept
There are plenty of people who find ringtones to be somewhat offensive — but mainly in the annoying sense. However, it appears that some political group in India has found ringtones of the Indian national anthem so offensive, that they’re calling for it to be banned. Certainly seems a bit extreme. You have to imagine that anyone who has the national anthem (even in ringtone form) on their phone is probably pretty patriotic in the first place. Rosanne (Barr) should be thankful she didn’t sing the Indian national anthem at some point. Imagine what they’d do to her?

Novel. Some would say it’s drawing attention to a symbol of the nationalist cause, so they should be *grateful* for the dratted ringtone. Hence I conclude they’re nothing but a bunch of drama-queens out to get attention, anyway.

Would anyone even recognise the Indian national Anthem ?
Hell, 1/2 of America doesn’t even know THEIR Nationa Anthem !

I thought the standard Nokia ringtone WAS the Indian national anthem…
