And which century do we live in?

What happened in Mangalore is not just despicible, it is shocking. Since when do we need a moral police to tell us what is right or wrong? Isn't India a democratic nation? What's the brohuaha about being the 'world's biggest democracy' if you can't let people, adults at that, decide whether they want to sit in a lounge bar and have a drink.





If you are so concerned about being moralistic, is this how you treat women? Are they meant to be beaten, pulled by their hair and called a whore? Since when did this become right?


And you might think, have a little hope that the moral brigade (who assume they have a right to molest and traumatize women - being a democratic country and all) might be brought to books for this dastard act. You are wrong. Democracy in India, it seems, doesn't work both ways. It only works for political elites. Pramod Muthalik, who by the way got arrested for 'inticing communal violence', a case pending from years ago, had this gem to add - "It's a small incident and we were only working against obscenity in public." Yeah right.

I rest my case.

moral police, church police, citizen police: all those little nice labels we put on the uttermost ugglyness of mankind.
In my country, Sarkostan, we have "citoyen volontaire" now. What a nice label: citizenship and volontaria are the root of democracy. Except that it s just hiding the most common ugglyness of a politico moralist citizen commitee.
Well they are not assaulting girls or boys in bars(press and justice are there (as far as I know))but be sure that Sarkostanis will know the very color of your clothes and how suspiciously short they were.Ho by the way, they hope that you have your passport and you ll behave to keep it.
