The condom capella (a capella is a vocal musical composition without instrumental support) could hardly excite Indians, felt many. More so when the word condom itself is taboo here. Yet, the song has been downloaded an astonishing 1.5 lakh times in the last 10 days. Till Thursday evening, Maharashtra accounted for 22,440 download requests, including 9,579 from Mumbai alone.
What is surprising about the popularity of the condom ringtone download is that Indians are generally averse to talking about or buying condoms. Call it the quirkiness factor or blame it on the anonymity offered by the internet and telecom worlds, but there is no denying that Indians have paid to download the tunes.
