Re: In Defence of Hindi Movies

My question is whether this is immediately relevant to the initial 
goals of this group (ie make India better in wealth, physical knowledge
and physical power). A case could be made that it would foster unity,
make easier communication etc which would effect the above three. But
in my opinion it is not a primary or even a secondary effect. Should
we spend our time then discussing this?
