Wonder if something like this exits in India as well??

quoting from the ucb page about banned words:
"About 15% of the words are sex related, the rest are all related to
politics. About 20% of the words are Falungong related, including
....(master) and .... (disciple); about 15% are names of current officials
and their relatives; about 10% are words used in the liberal political
discourse such as "democracy", "freedom", and "dictatorship"; and about 5%
are related to certain nationalistic issues, such as....(defend Diaoyu
Island),...... (Sino-Russian Border) ,....(selling out the country) etc.
About 15% of the forbidden words are related to anti-corruption, such as
......smuggling. ,.....public funds. etc. Other censored words include
names of dissidents, writers, and intellectuals, and names of certain
foreign publications."
