PUB CULTURE

AS THE WORLD HAS BEEN ON THE WAY OF MODERNIZATION, IT GAVE BIRTH TO SO MANY GOOD AND BAD THINGS. 'PUB' IS ONE OF THEM. NOW, YOU VISIT ANY DEVELOPED COUNTRY OR ANY METROPOLITAN CITY, YOU CAN SEE PUBS, DOUBTLESS, ON EVERY WAY YOU GO. IT IS NOTHING BUT, THE OUTCOME OF ‘AGGRESSIVE MODERNIZATION WITHOUT PROPER EDUCATION’.
PUB/ TAVERN IS CONSIDERED AS A PLACE OF ENJOYMENT. THIS ATTRACTS ESPECIALLY YOUTHS, AS THEY ARE SO CALLED 'PLEASURE SEEKERS'. WHAT MOST OFTEN HAPPENS IS, THEY GET THEMSELVES INTOXICATED AND IN THEIR UNCONSCIOUS STATE OF MIND, THEY DO ALL KIND OF UNSOCIAL ACTIVITIES, INVOLVE THEMSELVES INTO SCUFFLES. AS THE PUBS ARE OPENED TILL DARKNESS AND THEN, THE YOUTHS WHILE RETURNING THEIR ABODE, DRIVE THEIR VEHICLES IN THAT VERY STATE OF MIND, THIS HELPS INDIA TO BE A SUPERB ACCIDENTAL HUB AT NIGHT.HENCE, THEY BECAME A THREAT TO THE SOCIETY, AS A WHOLE.
WHEREAS, PUBS ALSO PROVIDES SOME PEOPLE WITH LIVELIHOOD. THE PUB OWNERS, THE PUB SINGERS, THE PUB STAFFS, THE ALCOHOL SUPPLIERS AND MANY OTHERS, INDIRECTLY, GETS EMPLOYMENT IN THE ECONOMY. PUBS HELP PEOPLE TO DISCHARGE THEIR FATIGUE AND HELPS TO GET UNPERTURBED.
THOUGH THERE ARE CERTAIN POSITIVE SIDES OF PUB BUT, IN NUMBER, IT IS LESS THAN THE NEGATIVE SIDES IT HAVE.
YOUTHS ARE LESS AWARE ABOUT THIS AND CERTAINLY THEY DON’T BOTHER TO KNOW THIS, ACCORDINGLY TO THEM, PUBS ACT AS A MODERN DAY VAGUE AND BY VISITING PUBS THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES AS A MODERN LAD. THE ONE WHO DOESN'T GO TO PUB, FACES HUMILIATIONS FROM OTHER MATES AND HERE IT PLAYS A PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPACT.
CERTAINLY, AS A REMEDY, GOVERNMENT SHOULD INTERVENE AND TRY TO ERADICATE THIS CULT.AS IT HAS BEEN SEEN THAT PUBS DO NO GOOD AND IT CAUSES ONLY HARM TO THE SOCIETY. GOVERNMENT SHOULD PUT A BAN ON TRADING OF ALCOHOLS, WHICH ACTS AS BACKBONE OF PUBS OR SHOULD CLOSE DOWN THESE PUBS WHICH HAS BECOME A THREAT TO THE SOCIETY. THIS STEP WOULD CERTAINLY REDUCE INTOXICATION, UP TO SOME EXTENT, PROMOTE HEALTHY LIVING AND WILL REDUCE ROAD ACCIDENTS, UP TO SOME EXTENT.
