Common life mistakes young people make

      • Being in hurry. To find the right person, the right career, the right job. When you are young, you want it all to happen all at once, before you even have a chance to figure yourself out. Take your time.
      • Thinking that love is a feeling. Love is a choice, and a commitment.  It’s something you do, not something you feel. Trust those who act like they love you, not just those who say that they do.
      • Drugs and alcohol can be addictive, which means that they will make you do things you normally wouldn’t do. Pay attention and be cautious with them.
      • Living to work, instead of working to live.  Never pass up a good thing.
      • If you think you can’t make a difference, you probably won’t. There is no margin in being a cynic.
      • Thinking that your parents aren’t as human as you are.  And taking them for granted: they won’t be around forever.

Is banning porn sites a breach of our Fundamental Rights or not ?

It is not a breach of our Fundamental Rights as ‘Right to watch free porn’ is not a Fundamental Right in India. Nor is it a part of right to freedom of speech and expression.

If you are to argue it though, it would be stymied by Reasonable restrictions.

Every Right is subject to reasonable restrictions and they are defined under Art 19 (2) of the Constitution. They are the following –

Security of the State
Friendly relations with foreign States
Public order
Decency and morality
Contempt of court
Defamation
Incitement to an offence 
Sovereignty and integrity of India

These above 8 are the restrictions on our Fundamental Rights. As you see, porn would come under ‘Decency and morality’ and therefore our right in that respect can be curbed by the state.
