Open Letter to the Camera Crew Filming Girls Outside Rain Pub, Jubilee Hills

Dear Sir,

Your TV segment on the girls outside Rain pub in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad is a blatant misuse of media rights. You should immediately issue a public apology and take action against the camera crew who compromised the safety and violated rules of media engagement.

What crime did these girls commit? Is drinking a crime? No! Is wearing clothes of one's choice a crime? No. Is waiting outside a pub for a cab a crime? No. Were the girls soliciting customers? No.

What were they doing? Waiting for a cab.

I would like to know why did your crew passing by the road stop on seeing a bunch of girls waiting for a cab? The cameramen without any consideration for the safety or modesty of the girls simply pounced on them and started taking pictures.

More than the girls, it shows the perverseness that prevails in the society. And your camera crew are part of that perverseness.

Please understand that we are a free democracy. Some of us prefer the western lifestyle than going to temples, burning our wives for dowry, and killing our daughters in the womb. Some of us prefer the western values more than being corrupt, slimy, and displaying traits of cultural terrorism.

These "someof us" are educated, independent, free thinking liberals. We reject the negative traits of Indian culture and want to live a lifestyle of our own without harming anyone or breaking the law.

Know that these girls are educated, independent, and they have a mind of their own. What this channel did was exactly something that makes incidents like Delhi rape case happen. You do not have any right, moral or otherwise, to impose your cultural preference on women of this country.

Adopting a culture or a lifestyle choice is a personal decision. As long as these girls are on the right side of the law, they have every right to drink and wait for a cab outside a pub.

Pain: Images look fine in MS Word, but after converting to PDF, image quality is poor.

Solution: Save your image in JPG or TIFF format and embed the image into your Word document to publish using Adobe PDF printer. PNGs are not suitable for word to PDF conversion, TIFFS work much better. Use high quality print setting while converting to PDF.
