Specially if the fun is not being had in the name of religion/tradition/custom? Like you can dance all night, make as much noise as you like, use loud speakers, serve alcohol, get drunk, get into brawls, molest strangers, block traffic with your dancing and celebrations, travel, spend huge amounts of money – if you do it because it is a tradition/custom/religious requirement.
How does the society respond to celebrations/fun when there is no religion/culture/custom involved?
Do some of us see anything that is done purely for pleasure (no moral or monetary benefits), as wrong?
Isn’t that the reason why such controls are not seriously challenged?
… police permission is required to host a party at a rented serviced apartment, resort, pub, restaurant or hotel,” …
party organisers must submit an application with details like the size of the gathering, the kind of music (DJ/recorded music/live performance), dance floor, timings, serving of alcohol and other such specifications.
“The police will then accept or reject the application depending on whether the party could disturb neighbours or not,” [Add to party checklist: A licence from local police]
If this is about disturbing of neighbors, then are religious gatherings, prayers with loud speakers, political rallies, fire crackers, birthday parties and wedding parties also included?
I also feel, the reason why we don’t see serious action against Taliban like acts and threats of acid-throwing, sexually-assaulting, stripping and robbing young men and women, is that many Indian parents see these assaults as a way of controlling their adult children’s lives.
Do you agree that many parents of young Indian adults don’t really mind archaic acts and threats by criminals controlling the social lives of their adult children?
