Discrimination or Class Distinction?

Do we still live in a free society? Or what do you call slavery?

    Free is relative term, from Lahore to Dubai, London, Washington, Tokyo, meaning of freedom changes, depending upon your skin, age, language, wealth, religion, gender. It determines your status in hierarchy of society. No one is free of discrimination.

    At least they allow female drivers, right?
    Seriously though, technically, if this is placed at a private property location, they do have the rights to reserve admissions (though that doesn’t make it right). So yea, where is this board?

    The British went out of sub-continent but left their illegitimate sons and daughters to rule us…

    I feel like vomiting after looking at such reminders of colonial raj!

    I can bet they allow dogs to pass, but not servants…

    Captain, can you please post the location of this board?

    This board seems appropriate and I think, it is because we still remember the ‘Indians and dogs not allowed’ injustice that anything remotely similar, we shun.
    Most of the places we end up visiting are private properties with rights of admission reserved. And the injustice ends there; it is the owner’s right to decide so and so to come, fine. We may disagree, but should understand the right to admission.

    Gymkhana, for example, does not allow casual clothes in the main hall. It also does not allow servants in certain places. I have always disagreed to this, almost as a matter of principal. But it is their hall, and their rules apply nonetheless. They want to maintain a certain decorum that they think should be maintained. Besides, the ‘need’ for servants is usually catered for at most places that don’t allow them.

    Just my 1 rupee & 60 paisas.
