A very landmark decision by Jayalalithaaa. Indeed, it is a cultural thing. MF Hussein was not allowed in a club in Kolkata because he came barefoot. What's wrong in being barefoot, when a multitude of Indians walk barefoot? And anyway that was the Indian culture till the khadams (wooden clogs) came into being. Why can;t we also wear khadams to clubs and uphold our culture. And the Muslims should be allowed to come in lungis. That is their culture. And there should be spittoons too since a lot of people have this habit of spitting all over. It is a cultural thing, but then we cannot deface the walls or the floors. And we must forbid foreign culture like suits and sherwanis and things like that since they are the attire of the conquerors and invaders. The President must abandon his sherwani or whatever he wears and don the dhoti. And Mamata Bannerjee should be an icon and so we must allow all to wear hawai slippers since it is an all purpose footwear which works in the bathroom so that one does not slip and also ideal for dancing in a pub! and since we cherish our Indian culture, Hindu widows should only wear white and have their head shorn when they come to a club and eat food that is made in organic salt and no meat or fish and also come barefoot! and no eating with fork and spoon or chopsticks. That is not our culture. To many this would appear outlandish, but then what is the answer? There is already a clamour that one must close down pubs and not wear bikinis at the beach since that is not 'our culture'. What is 'our culture' and can we have 'our culture' (as decided by politicians) just to suit our political needs and play to the gallery?
