The skit has received more than 345,000 views on YouTube thus far and fueled the debate on sex education in Indian schools. Many praised the underlying message depicted in the satirical video.
Even though the video is comically presented, it contains a serious message. I really appreciate your efforts and am sure that this will make this generation to think and take action against the ban that has nothing to do with the values but only brings harm to our nation.Sex in India:
Superb. Slap to this government policy with a blend of humourSujaishil Gaekwad

Users shared their experiences on learning about sexual reproduction in school. Some said their teachers were similar to the one shown in the video.
Mine skipped the chapter and kept giggling along with some stupid students whenever we asked abt that chapter. He finally drew us biological diagram of both reproductive systems and labeled them with parts. And the best part was when someone asked "what is scrotal sac?"... and he said I don't know.

In my school days-my teacher said that-natural things don't needed to be stressed- because its all by-nature. That's how our India become 1.3 billion-none of parents learned these classes-youtube.com
Some debated whether there is a need for sex education in Indian schools today.
Our generation doesnt need to be preached about sex. It needs to be taught about AIDS, STD, condoms, contraceptives, LGBT, homophobia. that is what Sex education is about. People need to be taught that sex isnt a dirty word and need not be associated with stigmaAbhijit Ghosh
Yes we dont need to be preached but many childrens need that education..Sex education not only tells how we should have sex but tells how it can be safe.facebook.com
I 100% agree with u guys..bt d real fuss is all abt making it mandatory...I don't think its correct to force anything in Democratic country...yaa d people (not only students) should have knowledge abt sex...bt bringing it to the syllabus is not only the solution..!! and in my personal opinion rural areas should be focused more than the urban areas where almost everyone is well aware. one more thing...sex education without moral education is not going to serve any purpose....look west...aren't they have AIDS...STDs or LGBT albiet they have sex education as a part of their education system. Hope u both understand and agree to what I said :)Pankaj Verma
Indians wrote the Kamasutrsa but they call sex a myth.I guess the Gods must really love India to bless us with such a large population.Florentyna Rodrigues
The health minister said on Thursday sex educations should be replaced with a different programme following the controversy over his comments.
"I have spoken out against so-called sex education without pedagogy on this burning issue and would like it to be replaced by a format which makes people aware about child pregnancy and associated evils,"zeenews.india.com
