Why not try to restrict this too for men?A very recent thread of mine on the traditional attire of half sari generated a counter point as to whether we should not be bothered about what men wear. I guess the answer is a resounding "yes", at least when we talk about the casual wear of the younger generation.
This happened at the post locality of Velacheri in Chennai. Near the bus station, there is a fairly big size mini supermarket on the Taramani road. The locality is full of IT professionals, a huge number of them are married and less than thirty. On a recent lazy Sunday, when a noticed a very tall young IT professional and his wife, they were discussing some software related issues even while shopping and were busy with a huge amount of purchase. This "touch and feel" and the friendly owners have made it a good location to shop.
The man, possibly twenty seven was in shorts. He was so tall that the half pant looked quite horrible. His wife in jeans was constantly joking totally unmindful of anything around her. Two girls who had come for shopping were seen commenting about the man.
Just outside, after their shopping, they met with someone whom they knew. This uncle was serious. He was well above seventy. He gently reprimanded the man, telling him that his attire is not acceptable. The woman kept mum.
What can be done? I see hundreds of such guys everywhere in Chennai and Bangalore. Is it fine to wear this dress? How do we counsel them?
