Single women tenants in Gurugram society accused of being ‘crusaders of prostitution’

It is a fact universally accepted that if unmarried people have friends of the opposite sex, the self appointed guardians of all things sanskar take it upon themselves to moral police them on what to do and what not to do in the private space of their homes.

On Saturday, residents of Essel Towers in Gurugram (the official name, but still popularly referred to as Gurgaon) were in for some quick lessons on how to behave:

A few residents of the apartment decided that if you are a bachelor and endorse views like men and women could even be under same roof unless they are having sex, then you are a certified Crusader of Prostitution.

Ah remember, Mohnish Behl had famously said, ek jawaan ladka aur ek jawaan ladki kabhi dost nahin ho sakte. Only that people seem to have forgotten that he was a villain in the movie, not a hero:

So it is fair to say that anyone having similar mindset in real life is a villain too?

This is not the fist time Essel Tower residents have displayed their regressive mentality. Earlier too, they had issued a ‘fatwa‘ against the bachelors of their residential complex that no guests of opposite sex is allowed. They have also been told to marry and live peacefully, because God knows how many marriages are peaceful in India.

The residents’ association sent out a notice on Saturday which has some pretty bizarre rules. Please read points 5, 6 and 7 of the notice (they have been marked in bold by the society itself, so they too want to you read those carefully): 

Now if it were me, who would go to any lengths to avoid meeting relatives I am not particularly fond of, I would totally cheer for these rules. Always wanted to disown some part of my family. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks like it.

On a serious note, regressive thoughts are not just limited to one city. Film actor Radhika Apte, too, faced problems while trying to rent out a place for herself in Mumbai with her live-in mate. Similarly, foreign expats too are barred from some places.

Who needs CCTV cameras for safety and security when we have the friendly neighbourhood vigilante looking out for us?
