Some of my reflections on the above incident:
- As free Indians, we are free to choose the lifestyle we want to lead
I am not arguing either for or against a lifestyle of booze and party ... just believe that the decision of my lifestyle should be on my own.
- The victims of this incident created envy on the predators
There is a class of Indian middle class society have achieved some sort of economic freedom, because of their hard-work (or their parents). They can afford to these sort of a lifestyle. We Indians, as a rule like to flaunt our wealth, and other less hard working, gets green with envy, and being true "Dog in a Manger" becomes a predator. Instead, if they would have invested in themselves, by educating themselves during their schools and colleges, they could have been free to choose their own lifestyles too.
- It again boils down to education
May be a bit too strong a point that goes here... but Indian Political leaders have been popular by sycophancy, and we all know educated people cannot be fanatics, thus it is in their own interest politics does not promote education of the masses.
- People argue that these kind of lifestyle is bad for society
You are free to choose the lifestyle you lead, and educating your children is your responsibility...not others. Make them educated, teach them to think logically and they would choose what they believe what is good for them.
- A little more on education
The people who have been victimized in the Mangalore incident, I believe they are from educated, hard-working class. Since they have a decent education, they can afford what they can do. We all should get educated to be acceptable globally.
- I am proud to say ... this does not happen in Kolkata
People from Kolkata are more cosmopolitan, though there may be small stray incidents, overall we are more tolerant, and disciplined.
