Indian wardrobe malfunction?

Kevin Anderson | 14:18 UK time, Tuesday, 4 April 2006

Indian police have been asked to investigate whether two models deliberately exposed themselves when items of their clothing fell off during fashion shows in Mumbai. Some say it was a publicity stunt.

Does the reaction show Indian society is still very traditional? Are the calls for an enquiry part of a backlash against the "westernisation" of Indian values?

The incidents have caused controversy in Mumbai where politicians were already waging a campaign against what they say are falling moral standards.
