Fashionable Single

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Kudos to Wired for taking up the cause of singles. From the cultural perspective, singles in India are generally pressureized to get married as soon as possible. I personally have had to come up with creative excuses to counter the questions of when are you getting married. Bangalore in particular is very single unfriendly. Going to the pubs alone is a big mistake and the clubs dont even let you in. Even in coffee shops, which are meant for hanging out in the first palce, you get awkward glances from people if you are alone. The only places where singles were welcome were the erstwhile Dance Bars. But to borrow Chetan Bhagat's quote, we singles live in perpetual hope.

Single life sucks!

If Bangalore is single unfriendly , then the next frontier to conquer is make it 'single friendly'. Start your own venture. Online- wheresinglesmingle/offline -say a thursdays karoake night kinda thinggy/singles movie nite etc. When successful and being interviwed you can say- This idea struck to me when I was single and lonely in Bangalore. :)
