In the Indian society, rarely couple who roam and show PDA in public is accepted by the people. Though the mindset of people is changing with modern life few traditional thinking can’t be changed and it’s totally a waste of time to discuss it. In the name of preserving Indian culture, we all do some stupid things which literally makes no sense.
Honour killing of the couple still prevails in some part of our nation and in contradictory to this few of the couples who are in love got the support of police so that they can marry each other. It is ironical that people have a problem with the lovers meeting each other.
The Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in Coimbatore came up with a great solution to this. It has asked Botanical Garden’s security to stop unmarried couples from entering the park. However, married couples with children will be allowed inside.
“Fed-up with the couples using the park as their hiding and recreation area, the university has come up with this rule. We initially tried to put up rules and regulations such as seeking their ID proofs and asking details such as phone numbers. Despite all that, couples continued to behave inappropriately causing a lot of discomfort to other visitors. Students and families have also complained many times.” said M Kannan, the professor and head of the floriculture department at the TNAU.
A student studying IAS said, “Restricting entry into a public place is completely illegal, the security guard told me that even if I was married I would not be allowed inside. Only couples with children were allowed. This is ridiculous. I had once gone with a male friend at 8 am on a Saturday morning. We both wanted to ideate for our new venture. But again, we have turned away. Even though I was with a male partner.”
As per the India Today, this is the second time the university has done something like this. As there is a registry at the entrance where the visitors are required to enter their name and personal details like phone number, age, residential address etc.
Isn’t an educational institution ought to teach students about the modern day society.
