Girls shouldn’t be visiting pubs, couples shouldn’t be holding hands, Hindu girls shouldn’t speak to Muslim guys, a guy & girl seen somewhere together should either be married or be siblings…….This is what the world has come to or rather what Mangalore has come to since its our world. We are supposed to be FREE people. We read it in our high school textbooks don’t we? “ India is one of the largest democracies in the world” We spend so much time studying all those things about democracy & being able to do whatever we want unlike a China , to grow up & be beaten up for trying to live what we studied back then!

Its come to a stage where people are genuinely scared! Forget going out with your girlfriend, now the youngsters fear even going out in a group inclusive of guys & girls…. The question we seem to be asking everytime is “do you think the beach is safe” , “is it ok to go to the mall”…..I mean A BEACH for Gods sake! What can be a more open place than a beach?

Today there is talk that the attacks on the girls at the pub was coz they weren’t following the “Indian culture” ….huh? Beating up women is “Indian culture” Oh yeah I guess it is just like those sari clad women at home who get beaten up by their drunk husbands for religiously following the “Indian culture”….Valentines day is just round the corner & we are scared that somethings might go wrong that day….ARE WE FREE???
