The habit of drinking and partying has become more persuasive amongst the youths of the country. In fact, the youths of the country have extended the partying days to other regular working days as well. There can be many reasons for this change in the lifestyle.
The factors that contribute to changing the societal behavior could be newer F&B formats, social freedom from the families, the feeling of security and above all the presence of money. This upward swing in partying habits is in the face of taboos and moral policing by certain political parties.
Cashing in on this trend, many clubs, pubs, restaurants have started organizing parties at different points in time. Gone are the days when the people doing the white collar jobs throng in these outlets during their weekends.
Any Day is a Saturday
One big change that has come about in the lifestyle of youngsters in last two years is the concept of partying all nights. A bustling bar is the hallmark of a bustling city. In the metropolitan cities like Delhi, things are fast changing and they are swiftly catching up with the Southern counterparts like Bangalore and Chennai.
For example, the famous Hauz Khas locality will be bustling with activity due to the party goers even on a Tuesday night. It’s a ladies’ night in many establishments in this enclave.
These outlets are not only famous amongst the ladies for serving sickly sweet cocktails but also amongst men for healthy mix of different cocktails using different brands. The tickets for the entry into the outlet hover around Rs. 1,500 per person.
Changing Equations of Boys and Girls
The concept for partying has changed amongst the boys and girls who are still studying in the colleges. They actually come from affluent families in the cities. They have pocket money for spending lavishly during the week days.
They tend to throng the party venues late in the night. They come in luxury cars and bikes with their friends in a bang and start partying. As more ladies and girls are daring to stay outside the confines of their house, the concept of partying has also become partly flirting.
The boys and girls flirt. In some instances, the flirting friendship graduates into actual love affair. In other cases, they don’t. Nevertheless, it has become a business of sort, after all everybody is an adult.
