Public Spaces

IndiBlogger Badge

There is a lot of hue and cry these days
about the rights on public spaces
can’t understand why private citizens
insist that their merry making
be done in public, that too on public roads!

Why not the merry making
in the privacy of a resort or one’s residence…
why should boys have all the fun?
appears a legitimate query
but then, both boys and girls
can have their fun in private rather than public

The same thing goes for religious celebrations
why not connect to your God one to one
in your homes or in  places of worship?
why insist on public processions on public roads
that give opportunities to the antisocial
to throw stones, to the manipulators
to sow discord among communities?

Fun and religion in private places
Instead of public spaces
So that society, read the ‘Aam Aadmi’
is not inconvenienced….
Something to ponder, to consider?
some food for thought...?


  1. I so so agree with you. And how I wish loud music late at night was not a part of the celebrations!

    1. Thank you Mridula.yes loud music can also be a problem.

    2. It holds true for any time of the day; the effect is more pronounced at night. Fortunately, nowadays they stop it by midnight, but not out of compassion, instead due to law.

    3. Thank you Amit for your very relevant comments!
