Yes....but my question is are our politicians, concerned department and parents sleeping ? Is it not our duty to see where our childrens r spending the whole day n why they are coming late at night ? Media says that the gals are regular visitors of pub amnesia where consumption of drugs n alchole is a daily routine. Their age group is bet. 20-28 yrs. Karnataka govt. wake up from deep sleep when Shri Ram Sena attacked pub. Im not supporting their act. But watever had happened in amnesia is very shamefull for Indian culture.

Politicians are also the citizens of the country. Like any other citizen they too have a right to voice their opinion. They should not be faulted for expressing their views (this is what media is doing. On one hand media screams for freedom of speech and at the same time it is intolerant towards politician who express something contrary to the sensationalism generated by the media). Our concern should be the double talk that politicians make. If they are against Pub culture why don't they have the guts to ban pubs and impose prohibition. This is something they will not do because the revenue that state earns as taxes and politicians and police earn as bribe by allowing Pubs to operate is so high that no politicians can afford to forgo this income. Secondly in the present events it looks like the objection is to women going to pubs and not operation of pubs as such. When we have reached a level in a society where women have the same rights and equal status as men, our politicians ...more

We should not encourage pub culture, Our culture is different, we have to stick on our culture only.

Pub culture is the indication of changed times like sari is replaced by jeans and scanty dresses. Politicians better take care of their own political house which is full of crime, corruption and caste politics. India doesnt have any moral right to condemn Taliban when we had so many under our nose who show their nonsense power on the roads. Before criticizing pub culture they should demolish Khujraho which we consider our national heritage but is far more damaging contents wise than pub culture according to your line of thinking. Pub culture is nothing comparing with Khujraho and almost nude dances in films. Better politicians mind their cultural fundas. It should be of concern of parents of girls but not of street gundas which most likely enjoy internet vulgarity in midnight hours.

Politicians play to the gallery, more so when elections are close. India is a country where the social disparities are too vast. A section has moved forward with the times, having taken the pains not only to get educated, but educate their own children too even if they had to undergo a lot of hardship in doing so. This opened up a whole new vista of opprotunities, which they have grabbed with both their hands, thus uplifting them financially and as a result socially too to climb up the ladder or to make a better life for themselves than their parents who may have struggled all their life without much to show at the end of the day when they had to finally hang up their boots. They lived to survive and had very little of what we call social entertainment in any form. Not so the two generations that are doing well in the present times, one more or less reaching or already reached the top echelons and the other at the start point or close to midway of that climb. They believe in living it ...more

Union Minister Anbumani Ramdass also spoke against the pub culture. As statesmen they can express their opinion on this and introduce measures to check the negative side of this, if needed.
