hi all

"Dogs and Indians not allowed" was the sign board in front of many of the British Clubs prior to 1947. Even after 68 years of Independence, some of the Clubs started by British follow scrupulously similar arrogance shamelessly. 

A couple of days ago, sitting Judge of Madras High Court Justice Hariparanthaman was denied entry into the TNCA Club premises when he went to participate in a Book Release function. The major sin committed by him was that he was wearing 'dhoti' and shirt. Even some of the senior lawyers of High Court who were wearing Dhoti were denied entry. The officials of Cricket Club told them strictly that they had to wear trousers, if they wanted to enter the Club. In spite of  Justice Hariparanthaman telling  them that he was not a member and he was visiting the Club as an invitee, they denied him permission.  This has sparked a big news in all the media. 

Way back in 1980, Justice Krishna Iyer was also denied entry into one of the elite Clubs when he was wearing Dhoti. He wrote later that he wasfeeling proud to wear dhoti. Dhoti is one of the traditional dress of Indians. Various parts of India wear dhoti in different style. 

Even some of the star hotels do not allow entry of the persons who wear dhoti.  When all the countries respect their own traditions and national culture, some of the arrogant organisations like TNCA shames Indians like this.  They never felt  ashamed when their mother organisation BCCI got involved in scams.  

Dhtoti clad Late Shri K Kamaraj was the King Maker of India and he installed two Prime Ministers and toured the world only wearing Dhoti. Former Prime Ministers Lal Bahadur Shastri, Narasimha Rao, Vajpayee used to wear dhoti even in important Conferences attended by foreign diplomats. 

Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and present Home Minister Rajnath Singh used to feel proud in attending Conferences with dhoti worn nicely. Nowadays, even Corporate CEOs feel proud in attending their Board Meetings in dhoti. It is a shame that some of the ancient clubs follow the British rule. Please read the story.

Parliament and Assemblies in India allow members to attend the sessions with dhoti.Many members take oath in their traditional dress.   Tamil Nadu Government observes one day as 'Dhoti day' every year to promote 'dhoti' among the students and office goers.  Unfortunately TNCA (Chairman: popular N Srinivasan who is in lime light) has chosen to humiliate arrogantly  a sitting judge of High Court, for wearing dhoti.  

I plan to take up in the Parliament through some of the MPs. Is there any other Club or hotel in other parts of India who follow this practice of not allowing traditional dress of India. Please inform me through mail. 

These Clubs are taking all benefits from the Government, including the lands on long lease. But still they feel that they belong to British days.
