    Up.... n Down........
    thinks Dude Hyderabadi...,

    Ye, that’s an ok-ok song by Vengaboys, but here, I’m talking about the attire of today’s ‘slightly’ westernized Indian girls. Apparently it’s the ‘in’ thing to wear tops n bottoms (pardon my fashion terminology) that don’t meet at the equator. It’s a different thing to wear not-too-long tops (which some girls can carry off with class) but wearing tiny stuff is something else. May be simple ‘mechanics of fashion’ like the length of a dress when standing n looking in a mirror is different (read longer) than when u sit down somewhere, aren’t considered while buying it.

    Alrite, they say their top’s short, big deal! They don’t mind,but may be they shud mind their low-waist jeans a lil’, especially when they’re not on the waist anymore. It’s obvious that they can’t look at it themselves but scores of others who’re driving or sitting behind them can. I’m not sure nobody really wants to put on a free show of this sorts on purpose, but a lil miscalculation of ‘fashion metrics’ can do it for them, whether they like it or not.

    ‘Who the hell am I to judge what you wear?’ you ask? I’m just somebody among everybody else, the kind of somebody that gets embarrassed seeing somebody else’s undies when they’re not meant to be seen. I’m more than sure that if I take the leniency to inform the girl about this, 'for her own good', I could well come back with a swollen cheek or at least a few curses ringing inside my head. The least they can do, for their dignity, is not just look in the mirror while trying on a new dress, but try it out in all positions.

    India's slowly coming out of its reserved n conservative shell, which is good in many ways, but that doesn't mean that we have to go out of way to ape any other culture. There is the right way n wrong way of doing things. A little proper thinking is all it takes to make the right choice between the two.

    PS: It’s only my good Conscience that’s not letting me put any related pics here.
    The italized terms in the blog are coined by me n don't exist in the sane world.

    To the anonymous commenters:
    1. Are you saying I'm wrong in trying to help save the diginity of our Indian girls ?
    2. Stop being anonymous and get a real name n life, plz.

      "trying to help save the diginity of our Indian girls ?"

      LOL! All hail the savior of the fairer sex in India. But seriously, who gave you that right?

      If you have the guts, publish this comment and respond to it otherwise you are going to need help.

      I think it is okay for girls to wear this. One might not be comfortable if one sees something like it but so what? Avert your eyes.

       
    • At Wednesday, January 10, 2007 11:07:00 AM, Blogger Dude Hyderabadi said…

      Of course I, personally, am gonna avert my eyes and I'm not preaching here about anything. I'm offering a suggestion and a suggestion is to be taken or ignored, not discussed about. If somebody think's I shudn't have written or suggested what I just did, they surely must be thinking otherwise. This is my opinion n that is urs. Comment away anonymously and happily. Ur comments are gonna be shown as long as there's no insults, 'cause there's no place for that on our blog or comments. Thank you n have a nice day :)

      "I’m more than sure that if I take the leniency to inform the girl about this, 'for her own good', I could well come back with a swollen cheek or at least a few curses ringing inside my head."...I am sure if you find some likeminded chaps you wont be so apprehensive about informing the girl... and that is how moral policing starts...all of those sickheads think they are actually helping the girls saving their dignity

      So, here we are having a blogger moral police

      I guess am a little heartened to see a 'dude' go against the norm.

      It's quite simple actually - just like you respect your wits, knowledge - essentially brain, the body deserves equal respect and honor. You just need to give it what it takes.

      Thanks for dropping by :)

      This has become an extremely common thing here (the US) so I've gotten used to just ignoring it. I don't really care what women wear; I would assume that they know that they are exposing themselves.

       
    • At Thursday, January 11, 2007 3:34:00 AM, Blogger Thanu said…

      Why do u care? Being a gal I can say 90% of the girls are aware of this and they still do it.

      There are lot of guys to who this happens, Y is that not a big deal?

      I write one post about what I experience in real life and write my opinion about it and offer a simple suggestion, not an advice, a suggestion, without any double or hidden meanings and people start finding anti-feminism and chauvinism in my post!? Where did THAT come from!?

      May be I was wrong when I labelled the blog 'Bloggers think best' because apparently, they don't, atleast most of them. They're always looking out to find hidden meanings that don't exist, to discuss or criticize, all just to feed their own principles or ideas.

      Indians are respected for their culture and tradition, n those who don't know how things are in India n why I wrote this better get their noses out of here 'cause they'll never really understand.

      I offer a suggestion and I get flamed for that? May be it's hard for these guys to digest that someone out there is genuinely giving a good suggestion that could well be taken or ignored. Too good to be true may be? May be these guys never met anybody who makes a good straight forward suggestion without any sarcasm or ridicule. Too bad. May be they should look at exactly what I wrote and not look any further and they'll get my point. Sarcasm and hypocrisy is definitely your game, not mine.

      so, her undies show. proves nothing else except that she owns undies and wears them. and i'm as indian as you are, my indianness doesn't lie in the waistline of my jeans and how much it hides or shows. yes, bad things happen to women in india, as in the rest of the world, but that has very very little to do with what they wear, more to do with the minds of the men who look at them. so next time you see a woman's undies peeking out, don't judge her just coz she's a woman. more men than i care to remember have worn falling off jeans that gave people liberal knowledge of their innerwear. don't get blinkered by your gender to think that this is a woman thing.

       
    • At Thursday, January 11, 2007 10:04:00 PM, Blogger Red said…

      Are you offended by men in low hanging jeans as well?

       
    • At Thursday, January 11, 2007 10:26:00 PM, Blogger Amodini said…

      I don't like certain things too, but it's none of my business to tell others what to do. And although I do see where you're coming from (don't do this - you might get hurt), such thoughts are the start of repression. You can modify your own behavior as much as you like, but the moment you want someone else to change their behavior to suit your taste, you become party to chauvinism. And where does this stop ? Today, it might be don't wear short tops, tomorrow it'll be - wear a burqa.

      The problem is not in wearing short tops, but in men thinking that women in short tops are up for grabs.

      And if we're that worried about culture, please do write a post on how men groping/eve-teasing women enhances it. Maybe men could do with a "if you know what's good for you" post.

      @ heh and red: Of course it would be embarrassing for me to have a guy with his undies peeking out in front of me, but personally I haven't enough men's undies peeking out to think about it. So may be it's more about 'what has happened with me' than 'my opinion about any particular sex'.

      @ amodini: Telling others wat to do is to give them orders and what I've done is anything but that. I didnt frame any dress code or rules. What i wrote is just a simple 'what they can or could do'. People (read all sexes) can show off whatever they like to, I guess no one has a say on that, but you shouldn't look at suggestions as a threat against your freedom. You can just take it or leave it. N yes of course I would definitely like to write about/against the sick men you mentioned about, guess then I have to face the wrath of many narrow minded men. Oh well., i took some., wouldn't hurt to take some more.
