Udupi: International Rave Party - Youth Cong Questions Silence of Communal Groups

Udupi: International Rave Party - Youth Cong Questions Silence of Communal Groups

Report: Shubhalakshmi
Daijiworld Media Network –Udupi (RD)

Udupi, Feb 5: The members of youth Congress on Sunday February 5 staged a protest in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue at Malpe beach here, condemning what they termed 'obscene dances' at the 'Spring Zouk' International Festival in St Mary's Island here on Saturday February 4.

Addressing the protesters, Shyamala Bhandary, lawyer and women’s Congress leader, said that communal outfits such as RSS and Bajrang Dal were quick to protest whenever they come across a youth belonging to minority community talking or sharing an ice cream with a girl from the majority community, but none of them raised a finger over the obscene dances during the International Festival in St Mary’s Island on Saturday.

“The people who were supposed to project virtues of Indian culture to Western tourists, disregarded their responsibility. The women’s organizations have also been slow in their response in this regard. The elected representatives and chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda are also in favour of obscene dances. It’s a disgrace to the BJP-led state administration and deputy commissioner Dr Reju,” alleged Bhandary.

Former state minister Jayaprakash Hegde, KPCC secretary M A Gafoor, Block Congress Committee president Janardhan Bhandarkar, Amrut Shenoy, Alevoor Harish Kini, Ramesh Kanchan, Ganeshraj, and Abdul Aziz Hejamady were present on the occasion.

The international festival, organised by a Bangalore-based firm in collaboration with the district administration and the tourism department, has drawn much flak over the behaviour of some of the skimpily-clad foreign tourists, alleged use of intoxicating substances openly and other undesirable activities.

The fact of matter was that Police and Exc.Dept.officials were in sufficient numbers there to guard against possible attack by self-vigilantes.

Hey Gerald, How can we show double standard to any person who do not have any standard?

Guys! many may comment by seeing these pictures that there is nothing wrong in such parties. Thanks to dailijiworld for not publishing the real dirty picture in their website what really happened during this RAVE party. Daijiworld has maintained its media decency. More then these picture there is much more dirty things happened during this Rave party which is really shame not only to our Udupi district but also for entire INDIA. This might be the first time in Indian history which has happened really dirty and bought shame to our Indian culture.

You will come to know the reality only if you have seen other news channels like TV9, UDAYA News etc... they have shown it directly. This RAVE PARTY has bought real shame to INDIA. Now were are Bajrangdals, RSS community? are they sleeping??? Moreover its really surprising to listen from our karnataka CM that nothing has happened during this party. Shame to BJP as well, they are not able to control the RAVE party... Once BJP is in power in Karnataka either you can find religious violence or this kind of dirty things. BJP should really learn from congress to maintain the state and the culture.

For RSS,VHP,BD,Rama Sene and so minded useless groups,dancing inside the Pub is against the morality under BJP Govt. It is because they could not watch those fully dressed Wealthy Girls dancing inside closed surrounding. It is okay for these goons to watch ladies dancing semi nude in swim suit outfits in front of thousands including BJP MLA Mr.Bhat. Sadananda Gowda was enjoying the beauty of these dancers and Pramod Muthalik was probably peeping through Key Hole and enjoying. Shame to elected officials.

This is typical India political propaganda.But the show went on much better than expected with different genre of thing i can tell u,i enjoyed the festival very much.Let they do their business of protesting just enjoy.This thing of protest by political parties in India never and will not end.Show must go onnn...

Life is there to enjoy why people are making this hungama If people like to enjoy iwth substance which are permitted under indian law liek alcohol it should not be seen as a bad idea. But drugs which are banned should not be used. I am for these kind of camp outs which will increase tourist input into udupi and will help our state to grow financially/.

Obviosely my cousins (as per Dinesh Poojari) came to India to enjoy holidays over here n not for mourning. Right Mr. Poojari. We need to develop tourism industry to get foreign currency. By any means acceptable no problem from Safrons.

Mr.Damodara, you are right, but only 50%.Whenever such protests happen, it is out of sheer jealousy or because one party wants to malign the name of other party for votes. Today it is the turn of Congress to protest, tomorrow the B.D/S.R.S/V.H.P etc will protest similarly when some event is organised by the minority community or their opposition parties.Congress and B.J.P are the two faces of the same coin.

My question is why double standard by the communal organisation like, BD, RSS, rama sene etc?? What would be the result if congress or other parties arrange this type of RAVE party?

They came, danced and went back .. and now these fools are protesting .

India nowadays .. too much protests .

someone eats , we protest
someone does not eat , we protest
someone did eat , but he/she didn't like it , we protest .
someone did like it , but he/she still did not eat ,we protest ..

whats wrong with all the people .
don't be so narrow minded . we pay cops (taxes), Elect the government to protect all this , cops and the government will do their job while.. you and i.. do ours ..

What is all this controversy about? The half naked photos are of foreighners and they walk the streets throughout the country in a similar way and it is mostly because of the hot weather! I have not seen a single local half naked in the entire island during these 3 days! Just making a issue out of nothing. If we dont want Goan culture, just remember Goa was part of Karnataka many years ago and also Goa is in India and not in Portugal!

The same congress party supports rave parties in Goa beach. In Karnataka since BJP is in power they have hit back BJP.

What a joke!!

Now what's this 'raving' all about?No political party is a "SAACHAA' and are privy to more horrendous things than 'Rave Parties'. The private lives of some of the top political leaders
(remember a Governor of our neighbouring state not so long ago!) known to many is always a case of 'Pati Patni aur WOH WOH WOH......./ Association with film artistes, dancers, singers , T.V. personalities etc etc ... is a known thing.... Why hold the high'Moral Ground' in MALPE?

Forget about communal forces for a moment,I have got a question here,if it was a 'Rave' party and 'Nanga Nach' whether it is acceptable to congress.Dont they(cong youth) have any problems if the same is performed in their presence.Is the upkeeping of morality is the concern of only RSS/BD.

Hmmmm gud comment .. I agree it is not gud should not be encouraged.. As u rightly said Rahul Gandhi is a rave expert and exlpored almost all corners of the world.. He did not even leave our own coorg "Cheyanbane and Napoklu" for his rave party craveness.. Hope Sadananda Gowda vl not encourage this anymore....

Damodara Bhat, Udupi

This protest is out of sheer jealousy.These paid protesters are out to fan trouble.These are the guys who drink alcohol,eat beef & womanise. Hippocratic ediots ! 'Spring Zouk' was a success to say the least inspite of a few hiccups,being the first show.We must have many more such shows and admire talent.Kindly do not indulge in bad/unwanted/unnecessary propaganda.Infact alot of youth congress workers were present to watch the show.I myself saw many of them drinking chilled Kingfisher beer,smoking,chewing gutka and spitting on the virgin sands and dancing.Infact one youth congress guy was so intoxicated that he did not realise his white lungi had slipped off.His friend had to fetch it for him.The less said the better.

Before you comment please read this line and then start commenting on this article ‘ Shyamala Bhandary, lawyer and women’s Congress leader, said that communal outfits such as RSS and Bajrang Dal were quick to protest whenever they come across a youth belonging to minority community talking or sharing an ice cream with a girl from the majority community. There are so many organizations in Udupi and Mangalore who support monkey army and other sene who show up during friend ship day and Valentine’s Day and now BJP is ruling and all the moneys become donkeys.

WHATEVER they do it is good for the tourism and local economy as long as they do anything obscene out of traditionalists sight. That's the freedom and choice, there is no harm to anybody

Dinesh Poojary Ji.. So nice that u are trying to be a hero. Dual Attitude is of BJP when vote comes they say the name of gods and attain vote bank. this we should understand. U say shame on Rahul Gandhi where as our own minister the great Hallappa raped his friends wife, Renukacharya is a rave party expert with all nurse around him. Understand the fact and then try to be a hero here. Bye now.

I saw the pictures n snaps, there is nothing so valgur or naked. DVS has done the best. In such party's it's common. No drugs or liquor. Just bear n cigarettes. This is a false accusation. I am in full support for DVS. Molly may be jealous may be not invited. Or age is catching up with him. To develop tourism, it's should be allowed. Plz congres keep quiet on this issue. Foreigners are coming here to enjoy n not to mourn.

If you want to attract the international tourist these activities are needed. No one comes beach to do bhajans. Even hardcore religious countries also becoming liberal in these aspects there is no point in blaming these types of activities

Those who are already naked they cannot point out at others naked dance. If some one wears Safron under garments and dance no problem at all. Jai ho. Jai ho Kolaveri di. BJP want to ban Made Snana but will promote Rave party's.

Why congress is questioning Safrons about the party? Are they policing our state? What the he'll police is doing?

Gerald, modankap-bantval, why didnt you come and stop the same from Bantwal. Why are you waiting for BD/RSS for everything. Dont bring RSS/BD in this matter. If RSS/BD interfiers into this matters also you will come with the comment stating that it's their personal choice. In this case since your secular party congress is protesting you are commenting in favour of them. Whereas protesting for each and everything as become part time job of your secular party congress now. Also dont worry after next assembly election protesting will become the full time job of your secular party congress.

Rave Parties involving drugs and the wandering Nationless Foreigners should not be entertained in the holy city Udupi. We should invite quality tourists & not these Hippies who sell drugs and themselves for a living. Udupi is a sensitive place with deep rooted Cultural heritage and thousands of young students in Manipal and Udupi. The Rave party should be stopped with immediate effect and the organizers should be arrested without bail for organizing an event involving drugs, prostitution, etc..

BJP and its parivar is a party with difference. Always double take and double standards. I think its organised and facilitated by BJP itself. They need minorities involvement to make it an issue. I think the organisers must have bribed these goons to keep away. Disgusting people and disgusting party..

Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/Bengaluru

I agree that obscene dance in malpe beach is not acceptable. But who are these rogues to protest against this?

We all know that it was during S M Krishna's tenure, rave party took a shape in the state. When Bangarappa was CM, he allowed pubs in Bengaluru, now it has spread all over the state.

What these rogues are trying to say now? They are having Rahul Gandhis photo in the banner. Rahul gandhi is a rave party expert! Shame on them..

Just look at the crowd, hardly 30 people to support them. Every one knows the truth, who encouraged the rave parties in the state..

Dear congress leaders, by doing this kind of protest, you will not fetch any votes in the coming election.. Stop your dual attitude..

Derek, Mangalore/USA

Given preference or my leaning, I could be Pro- Congress, but this agitation I personally find it silly or politically motivated.

Poeple go to the beach, have fun and have a small drink ( called Chota). What is wrong with that.Every HUMAN BEING does that whether White/Black or IN between! it's human nature. Done that not now, But 30 years ago in Kudla in the 70's-80's.

On one hand they want to advance tourism ( to make money-NO DOUBT), but on the other hand, they do not want to adapt to any CHANGES and KEEP UP to world standards. You have to be progressive/aggressive rather than banal/stupid, else would take us back to stone-age.

Moral of the story- You cannot HAVE the cake and EAT it too!

"Kailagadava MaiParachikondante"....

This "Semi-Nanganaach" by CONgess is prelude for next parlimentary byelection of Udupi parlimentary Constituency...they dont have any achievements since 1980 to show to people...other than this nonsense....
