Woh humare geet ko rokna chahte hai... Khamoshi todo, waqt aa gaya...

They sang non-stop, an unbreakable chain of 300 odd people. Delhi came together for its Kiss of Love, and how.

The police at Jhandewalan Metro Station would not let them march to the RSS headquarters. So they pushed against the Khaki-clad human wall. On being pushed back, they smiled, turned around and took a longer route, swelling in numbers, still singing songs of love.

Although the official report says there were 150 protesters present at the Delhi leg of Kiss of Love, ground realities pointed to a much bigger, powerful number. They marched down the road, singing and chanting, demanding their right to expression without fear of persecution. The 'kiss' may have had to wait, but the love and solidarity among all the protesters only increased.

A movement that started in Kochi on November 2 , travelled across the country via Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kolkata , to finally hit the capital hard. Here are some memorable moments from the protest against moral policing.

In conclusion, we ask a question we have asked before : Why is it okay to piss in public, but not to kiss in public?

Forward on, India. It's time to change.
