CNN IBN reports that the Supreme Court of India has allowed women to ply the bartending profession. Shocking!
The “discerning reader” would be quick to label this writer as a male-chauvinist and someone mired in old, stupid ideas that stereotype the role of men and women in society. Welcome to the club!
As someone who looks down on drinking, I do not know what the fine art of bartending is all about. Maybe women have a special skill that men lack when it comes to mixing whisky, soda and water. So I commend the Supreme Court’s decision as it is based on the relative abilities of the two genders.
But then, all of us know / have read that while women, wine and willingness make an excellent combination, when the latter turns negative, the results are unpalatable. If people driving under the influence of alcohol are a danger to society, then so are they when next to a woman.
The usual feminist argument is “So I should not pursue what I like the most because I cannot trust a swine?” or “Men will always be men.” Yes, I agree. And from the next time, do not lock your house.
Reminds me of an episode of Kadavul paadhi, Mirugam paadhi from Vijay TV, where they analyze the movie Manmadhan.
Mirugam: “Indha padathula Mandira Bedi, Yana Gupta ellaam super-a, thathroopam-a nadichirukkaanga!”
Kadavul: “Dey, Chendu. Avangala ellaam paththi appadi pesa koodaathu; avanga ellaam kalyaanam aanavanga…”
Mirugam: “Kalyaanam aanavanga naa, veetla purushanukku pongal kindi kudukka sollu… adha vittuttu ippdi ellaam nadichaa…”
