5 Places In India Where Indians Banned
As absurd it may sound, but there are places in free India, which are banned for Indian’s. Indians banned! Yes that’s the message they carry and that too very proudly on their brands showing off to the world.
Cafe Free Kasol
First place on our list is run by a freak in the town of Kasol, Himachal Pradesh. This was said by a visitor in the cafe. Obviously this one tops the list. What isn’t obvious though is, how an establishment that calls itself “Free Kasol” and has a thriving hippie/free- spirit culture also has an arcane and discriminatory rule like this!
Uno-In Hotel, Bangalore
Bangalore has already made it’s mark in the news lately, when few of the north Indians were attacked. North Indian’s were not good enough, so they decided to ban the entire Indian community.
Set up in association with Nippon Infrastructure to cater to the growing influx of Japanese expats in the city. It came under the scanner when several reports emerged of the hotel staff not permitting Indians to the rooftop restaurant. The hotel has now been shut down by the Greater Bangalore City corporation on charges of racial discrimination.
Beach Only For Foreigners In GOA
The reasoning behind this one is that it protects bikini-wearing foreigners from the lusty eyes of Indians. Now wait a minute, what about bikini-wearing Indians. Also are we Indians the only ones who have lust eyes?. (Don not confuse yourself with the Delhi goons)
“Foreigners Only” Beaches in Puducherry
We have changed its name from the western sounding Pondicherry to the more “Indian” sounding Puducherry. However Indians are still not permitted to enter certain demarcated beaches in this beautiful French influenced territory of India. Furthermore, yes, I don’t get it either!
“Unnamed Hotel” in Chennai
A news article in the Deccan Herald tells us about a lodge (name withheld) that only caters to foreign passport holders. The lodge has been given the pseudonym “Highlands Hotel”. However there is some unverified speculation that it may refer to a former Nawab’s home called Broadlands Lodge in Triplicane.
The issues which now persist, is that the business establishments who has tie up with the local enforcers thrives. However the other business which do not intrigue the local enforcers end up shutting their stalls.
