Drunken mobs same worldwide

Scouring the times of india, a piece of news caught my attention.

With the recent outrage looming large over the Juhu molestation incident, this seemed like deja vu.

It seems a mob in Australia did the same with women out there and this race car event was promoted as a "family event"!

Hundreds of people took to the streets of Canberra for the annual Summernats festival, billed as a family event. Instead drunken young men morphed into mobs harassed any woman they found in their sight and demanded they flash their breasts.

Booze and boys never mix especially when they get into mobs.

And this phenomenon will only become more common in India as we become more western in our lifestyles. And for all those much tooted values of ours by conservatives, why dont you ask the men to not drink.

So while the woman's dress is criticised, its ok to get drunk and act lousy!?
