This sad tragedy should be a alert call to all the major cities in India with respect to the New year Day, wherein there would be huge crowds with little focus on safety and inspections. Just last week, we read a report about illegal pubs in residential areas of Bangalore. Many such pubs and small dance hangouts are spread across the country that are popular with the teenagers. It is sad that so many people have lost their lives in such a terrible way. These joints cannot run without the cooperation of the local authorities and leaders. With their blessings and greed for corruption, the owners of such pubs turn a blind eye to safety and keep building up and expanding the clubs flouting all safety norms and building norms. It is disheartening to see that people have to die to enforce the basic rules that should have been followed much earlier. Now the civic authorities have woken up and checking the licenses of other pubs and demolishing the illegal ones.
