Mr. Muthalik and the chaddi story - Valentines Day 2009, Bengaluru

So Mr. Mutalik - yea otherwise known familiarly by the name Sri Rama Sene head, thought he could do impressive stunts by bashing up a few pub going girls who went 'against' "their" culture, in Mangalore and according to him were dancing nude. So I am now wondering who was drunk on that day, to say the girls would have been dancing nude. Since when did India start having nude dancers and pub goers may I ask?

So to correct this 'avmaan' to mother india and mother karnataka, our man decides he will fondle them instead along with his goons. So he starts showing the 'right' karnataka culture? I remember that somewhere in Hampi is a kind of a semi-hideout reserved only for foreigners who indulge in drugs and whatever else they want to. Why should not Mr. Ram Sene try his luck in this place? Where Indians are not allowed!? Leave alone him getting scores of pink chaddis, he would probably come back in a chaddi himself.

That comment notwithstanding, many girls in Bengaluru and other places in Karnataka sent him pink chaddis, with love messages written one among which read "This stinks - perhaps its Mutlaik's!". And the Ram Sene were proudly photographing holding these chaddis in front of the camera. For what? To show how they fit in the 'Indian' culture? I also faintly heard and read that he planned to retaliate by sending the same people sarees to show them what Indian culture is, and after a while went back on that proposal and also did not do any protests in Bengaluru. Why? Is it because he ran out of money to buy sarees, or were the pink chaddis too many in number considering the current population of Bengaluru.

People of this state have learnt to vent their loser attitude in all such things as women going to pub and men working in IT and shit like this. Who said that only men should go to pub? Or for that matter even arrack shops? How many women have been rendered homeless because of such nataks? And how many women have converted their husbands to the right path? And not the other way round? So why generalize that every woman, and further every pub goer further who wants to celebrate Valentines day is considered against our culture.

Now the real point in all this crap of a discussion is the fact that Valentine's day is a celebration which is out of Indian Culture - and I whole heartedly agree with this. It was never an Indian celebration - of love - or for that matter of hate or any other shit. But did we just realize that there are thousands of companies, who are commercializing on Valentines day gifts, flowers and other such artifacts for thousands of rupees each year? So why one rule for some and another rule for others? The point - love, drinks, gifts and valentines day - none of these are really related. I can always love, or drink, or gift (though I really dont celebrate 14th Feb), while others do all these more freely on 14th Feb. Why? Because there is a collective passion from the youth on this day. Whether to accept love or to reject it. Its just a fun time leading nowhere for no reasons.

Mr. Mutalik can actually work on other things that are bothering the state more now. Agreed he might have got some money from some party to malfunction this way - who knows might be from the BJP itself for all one knows. And he did get his 10 seconds of fame no doubt. But why did he pull Sri Rama into this controversy? Was it all required? Today the moral police and the media (in a way they both are the same is it not?) are ruling over us. Every decision we take, make or break is based on news and news only. Where has our inner conscious gone? To think what is not correct and what is for ourselves. If you are in a bad mood with your girlfriend and you want to make it up, and there is 14th Feb, why not? On the other hand, if you are a regular Bengalurean, and these things dont matter to you, any other day is vals day ! :)

Moral police of the story : Sri Rama would have hated it if he had seen Mutalik's doings for today!

Car Rentals in Kuala Lumpur - SoCar vs GoCar

IntroductionAs I was headed to Malaysia for a trip for 10 days, I needed an option to commute within the country. While renting cabs with drivers was definitely an option, there was no privacy enough, and there was no way to make my own decisions on where I wished to go when. I was not so keen to rent a cab outside of KL city.We had plans to visit multiple places such as Cameron, Penang, Langkawi so I needed a vehicle which I was willing to drive myself. It was the best option as it would give me the convenience without burning a hole in my pocket. The trip itself was turning out to be expensive and I wanted a good option for inside the country travel.Things that I was looking forAs any first time car rental customer, I had some concerns, so I needed theseEasy rental mechanism, including driver sign up and validation of

How to cover Malaysia in 10 days - full details on a self planned trip

Some history Ever since 2016 my wife and I decided that we want to do one international trip (though not necessarily one country) every year. We made it to Singapore in 2016, and Dubai in 2017. It was time to explore and take my family to Malaysia this time around in 2018.

The fact that I was working in Malaysia in 2002 and could not get time in the short one year that I stayed there to see many places only meant the urge to go there was pretty strong in order that I could get another chance to cover all the places I did not see this time around.

Also 15 years down the line with a lot of instrastructure and convenience improvements happening around the world, surely the trip would seemingly put me at more ease than earlier on. So it was time to decide how to plan the trip.

My logic for planning trips I usually do my own booking and planning for everything for my trip. I look through places to visit, I look through multiple sources of reviews, I look through the best times to travel t…
