If a public statue is to be climbed upon, the State would have built a public structure for climbing instead. There's nothing about a statue that is constructed purely for climbing exercises.

Secondly, there's a difference between taking advantage of any photo opportunity, and remembering what the objective of the statue remains.

Thirdly, it is precisely because with time one tends to forget that having symbols will add to the store of history from which lessons can be learnt.

If we don't learn from the past, how can we progress into the future?

If we climb our public statues, how can we remember why they were built?

...personal feelings, but times are changing fast.


Times may change....but problems remain the same.  That is why national strength is important.  Otherwise we will float here and there with every problem.  When that happens, others will take advantage to create more trouble.

No public statue was ever constructed to be climbed upon.

I can understand your personal feelings, but times are changing fast.

Do you know that in Mumbai, India, kissing in public will be fined with 50 Rupees ?

Do you know that even in Germany  ...


I agree.  I really don't understand why some people make a fuss about it. This is a young and new generation, the generation that represents a New China. They want to enjoy their lives. They are unconventional and open-minded. People should understand that the older generation is not there to only lecture young people what to do and what not to do, they can also learn many things from their offsprings. Last but not least, RELAX all you moral preachers.
