Womans power , a need for thorough retrospection

It was an usual morning after getting up , I ran downstairs like mad to have a glance at my love , yes ,my first love , a lady of more than 100 yrs , surprised ? yes its none other than The Hindu newspaper . I love the paper so much because it taught me first how to spell , the second thing is that, it taught me , how to be myself even when the whole world is changing . Yeaaa…, when all other newspapers succumb to the cheap tabloids and advertisements the Hindu sticks on to its traditionality . It is the same Hindu that i read before 10 yrs with addition of a decent new look as designed by virtuoso Mario Garcia. Yea, then after running over the pages.... no great news!!! except the disheartening mumbai indians elimination ,so i just had a look at the more outspoken magazine the outlook . I was surprised to see an article on the rising instances of woman drinkers in india . Oh god!!! i cant beleive my eyes, how can this happen in india , no not at all , i began to read the article . It was sooo disheartening that such a habit was prevalent mostly among all the affluent urban woman who are with their own jobs . I was really shocked when i read a woman saying drinking is a social responsibility . She also said that in big get togethers which involves a lot of big wigs from the MNCs, a person who doesnt drink becomes an unfit person. Is this the culture the MNCs propogate?? , is it our true Indian culture...??? Friends please remember the Hindu, when u have such a moral obligation . It has stood steadily with time when others have succumbed. It doesnt lose its original qualities......, so lets stick on to our culture when in such situations. Then returning to the article although i was upset on reading it , i was also happier on the other side. Can u guess why? yea because the woman have started to venture into un ventured territories( they have even started drinking). Yea So is 33.3333% woman reservation in parliament needed? lol ,no,not at all, it would be a few days before woman over haul men in politics, So male politicians beware... and thoroughly retrospect womans power..........

well, atleast they now seem to prefer 33.3% v.v......
But i don't get this concept.... why is it wrong if women take to drinking? I mean, if men can drink glasnost and not be accorded a social stigma, why is it that this stigma is attached to the woman alone?? I just don't get it... If one is an ardent supporter of equality, then either it should be wrong for both sexes or not at all.... And talking about culture, just because its not part of the past it doesn't mean its not a culture... dude, these women are rewriting the record books..... Lets give them a fair share.... who are we to dictate terms? why don't we let them lead their own goddammned life??? I wouldn't take such a woman as my wife, though... thats my personal preference..... but can we expect everything to go as men want it to?

Drinking is a bad habit in general. It doesnt apply to woman alone (in any culture). Anyone can say any reasons for drinking. But the argument given by the woman that one who dont drink in get togethers are "unfit" is really bad. I guess men will ask for 33.33% in everything within 5 years. :-)
