On The Buck Stops Here, we ask: should two teenagers who were hugging in their school in Kerala be suspended? Should the boy be denied the opportunity to take his board exams? Is it fair that pictures of these teenagers posted on a private Instagram page become an additional reason to victimise them, to allegedly slut shame the girl and treat the boy as if he was a rapist? Are schools the ultimate arbiter of the moral values our children should have? Don't social mores change?
