There seems to be a huge misconception about pub culture unless of course pubs in India are dens of iniquity compared to other parts of the word. You've got pubs and you've got bars. A pub (public house) is somewhat like a cafe, it is a meeting place where friends gather together to have a chat whilst enjoying a drink and a meal. They are licensed to sell alcoholic drinks but also sell soft drinks, tea and coffee. It is I believe illegal to sell alcohol is anyone under 18. The landlord has the right to remove anyone who is not behaving correctly and he should do that. Traditional games are played such as darts, snooker and some pubs have a team to compete against another pub's team. But generally they are a place to sit, relax and chat. So where's the problem. If the pub doesn't appear to have an inviting atmosphere then be selective and find one that does.

Pub is a place which serves alcoholic beverages, music and food. The meaning of culture is customs and civilization of a particular time or people (oxford). I believe the pubs are redefined by the introduction of DJs, who now operate in discotheques and pubs, so, I deduce from the above definitions that Pub Culture is the usual way of behavior or acting, and the social developments and refinements of the group of people, that is the people visiting pubs. A few pubs are dedicated to a particular genre of music like rock, house or hip hop. This brings people with the same interest of music together; it is a profound thing for many who gather to appreciate music.What is wrong about such gatherings? Now since you have asked about the liberation from the hell to the heaven, the problem is who will decide what is hell and what is heaven? An unanswerable question I guess :)) I imagine many assume that the clubbing society is, of philandering, drugs and infidelity.This is grossly misconstruin ...more

What is this hue and cry about pub culture. It has been there for eons now even in India. If drinking by women is looked down upon I know of several women who do it at parties, at gatherings, in their own homes, etc. and so why point a finger at pubs alone. There is more there - ofcourse I have not been there - than just mere drinking - intelligent conversion, music and such other relaxing moments. No. Pubs will not lift women from hell to heaven nor will wife beating, terrorism, eve teasing, rape, cruelty to animals etc which define Indian culture.

In today's world where men and women equally share all the stress and strain in place of work stations , they require some relaxations like club activity , pub etc to relax. As long as it is within limits ,it is useful and is fine. It is the individual self control that plays a major role and blaming the providers is not fair. Long ago if anybody crosses the sea , they will be outcast in orthodox Brahman family. Is it possible to adopt tradition now ? world is ever changing and overt acts are bound to be there and it should b taken as such instead of rigidly holding on to tradions.

The uncontrolled desires are ignited in such revlry. It is an opportunity to 'enjoy'
the sense desires. I am yet to see a person who is willing wholeheartedly to send his wife or daughter to such places for the
enjoyment of others.
