This is from Tamilnadu's leading vernacular Newspaper Dinamalar. I have done a faithful translation of the article. See if you can spot all the prejudices in the article. Tamil article with pictures here
"Dont think this girl is having a soft drink. What she is drinking is foreign liquor. A glass is not enough for her, so she drinks straight from the bottle. See their actions once they are drunk.
A fashion design related party was held at The Park day before yesterday. Men and women had come dressed in clothes designed by fashion designers. The regular ramp models were missing in this party. The couples took their drinks, had something to bite and started rubbing against and kissing their male and female partners. In our culture where married couples feel shy to hold hands together in public, getting drunk, kissing in public places and dancing together is increasing day by day. The Police Commissioner Mr. Natraj had promised that obscene fashion shows will not be allowed in Chennai. But such obscenities are happening on daily basis in the five star hotels. Is the police department hesitating to take action against upper class citizens?"
This from the paper in which the lead columnist regularly writes about meeting his friends in pubs and bars (though stressing that he doesn't drink). No wonder the rest of the country calls Chennai as conservative, they should call it hypocritical too.
Why am I in a rant mode these days? Should probably have a drink and puke at these people.
