It is awful to see brawls at Delhi’s nightclubs; and invariably it has to be the same lot every single time. It’s understood that you had too much to drink, snort, blow and you are totally wasted, but that doesn’t give you the license to unleash aggression and pick up fights. And if you thought your macho bravado impresses girls, you are mistaken. It rather puts them off!
Last Friday, two well-known faces of Delhi, a top industrialist and a scion of one of the top exporters, roughed up a timid guy. And guess what, the boy was one of the top cop’s son! Imagine, even a top-cop’s son is not safe in the Capital’s claimed-to-be most-exclusive and ‘members only’ joint. Fortunately, nothing untoward happened as cops landed up in time and the high-profile clubbers were locked up till they were bailed out at noon the next day. I’m sure this won’t deter them to brag about the incident. But hey, they spoilt the night for so many others who were partying harder after working hard the entire week.
Delhi has this typical problem. If you are somebody (which everybody in this city claims to be), you won’t like to stand in a queue, won’t let yourself be frisked and if somebody accidentally brushes past you, you land up punching his face. At another popular club, when a brawl started, the DJ was spinning, Who let the dogs out. And it fitted these dogs... oops, these brawny guys so well. These troublemakers mostly look for the stupidest excuse to fight. Seems they need to vent their frustration somewhere and nightclub brawls are the perfect idea. I saw a rich brat throwing the glass because the bartender added three instead of two ice cubes in his drink! Bet you can’t beat that.
Dear nightclub owners, you know who these miscreants are. Just because they have money to throw, don’t make them VIP patrons. If they can rough up a cop’s son today, they may just tease your daughter tomorrow and all that money won’t salvage her bruised modesty.
