Over 3 decades I have seen changes in the standards of censorship. In the 1970s when I was a freshman in the Board of Film Censors, we used to delete a lot of things which are now not deleted. For example, flip knives, opening of flip knives was deleted at that time or knuckle duster. These are considered gangling weapons and gangsterism was very prevalent during that decade. So it is relevant that it was deleted at that time.
