The Bar Today as I opened the yahoo page, there was this piece of news.Seems Banglore state government has decided to have lady bar tenders, clad in Salwar Kameez, which will be the dress code shortly.There was no idea of any blog in my mind, blogs do chase me I swear. It seems that the unemployed Bar Girls of Mumbai are now thronging Banglore Bars, and dressing provocately, while serving drinks.And the best part is, they are giving the contract of making the Salwar Kameez to some Fashion Institute, to have a common style SK for the ladies. I wonder if Chunnis or Dupatta as u call them , will also be a part, and how high or low will be the front cut, if u know what I mean. Does it mean that now the patrons have sexy thoughts of the girls, and if u have them in SK, they will think of them as their sisters ? Is this like asking a girl at the sea or the swimming pool to not expose herself in a swim suit and swim in the SK or saree ? One must dress appropriately for the occasion, I agree, but I don’t think SK would be the proper for a Bar .For as she bends to serve, the chunni will keep falling, getting wet in the drinks, and for the drinkers the charm will be gone. I have seen naked women on the beaches of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Spain</st1lace></st1:country-region>, thousands of them, and most are ugly.And some of the most sexy and georgeous women that I have seen, are fully clad, u will never see Vidya Balan show an inch of cleavage, at least I havnt seen any pic of hers, but she oozes oodles of sex. Same is the case with Deepika Padukone, Moushimi Chaterjee. And look at Rakhi Sawant, she shows everything that can legally be shown on the channels, and yet she looks ugs. There was a very interesting case of a bar girl , maybe 5 years back, before I started blogging, and it made headlines. The bar I think was named Pooja Bar, not sure though, the girls was named Taranum. She used to travel in her Mercedes and she had a bunglow to boot in <st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Delhi</st1lace></st1:City>, in one of the poshest areas. And a subcontinent cricketer was introduced to her, by Aditya Pancholi, the actor, and it is said that tens of lakhs of Rupees were thrown at her dance in a single night by the cricketer.We never got to see her face in the papers, God knows what she had , that people could blow so much on her in one night. The news died down, as it should, for there could be so many important people involved. My point is , has anyone besides the Ram Sena fellow, who got his face blackened, complained about the state of the bars? These bars must be expensive, I know, and for a person like me, whose peg costs 40 at home, will not pay 500 for it there, for he needs 3 pegs, even if my friends were to spend on me, I wouldn’t go and waste their money. And these bars are patronized by mostly those, who earn loads of black money, day in and day out, corrupt officials, and their ilk,. For they know, they could be raided anytime, and they know tomorrow they will have more moolah coming in, for them it is fine to blow up money. And money must circulate, and go from the pockets of these people into the pockets of the needy, read bar girls here, most of whom live in shanties, and want to educate their small kids. Who are we to stop the girls, or the customers or the bars ? All this is a political gimmick , dear friends, I hold no brief for these girls, but if the girls are not complaining, nor the barowners, or the customers, who are these politicians to interfere in this. In fact like we have the A sign for Adult movies, we can have a similar sign for these bars, so that those who go in, know before hand not to take their wives and girlfriends inside, and carry loads of cash with themselves, for the rates of the drinks will be killing. Each to their own , I suppose. KAMAL MAHTANI Why are wives more dangerous than the Mafia. Mafia want either your life or Money But wives want both. Wife – Why do u wear specs every time I come close to u Husband – Doctor told me, to put on specs whenever I see a headache coming. After killing millions of people due to Diabeties, the cube of sugar proclaimed “ My name is Khaand, but I am not a terrorist !!! Santa subha uthkar walk pe <st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">gaya</st1lace></st1:City>. Thandi lagi to jaldi wapas agaya, aur biwi se chipak kar so <st1lace w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">gaya</st1:City></st1lace>. Aur bola – Bahut thand lag rahi thi Wife - phir bhi mera pagal pati walk pe <st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">gaya</st1lace></st1:City> hai !!!
