Indian women 'can serve alcohol'
By Shyam Suman
BBC News, Delhi

Indian women can now take employment as bar tenders
The High Court in the Indian capital, Delhi, has overturned a law which banned women from serving alcohol in public places.

Two judges ruled that the 1914 legislation was unconstitutional.

They said the law violated a woman's fundamental right to equality and to choose her own profession.

They were ruling on a petition filed by the Hotel Association of India and two women hotel employees, who said the law was damaging their career prospects.

'Excelled'

Judges Mukul Mudgal and HR Malhotra agreed.

They said the law prohibiting women from serving alcohol was an impediment to their career in the hospitality industry.

It's a great thing. I just hope it works because things take a long time in India to change

Anoushka, bar-tending student
The restrictions imposed effectively ruled women out of the essential functioning of the industry, they argued.

Since alcohol was served not only in bars but also in restaurants, at banquets and even in hotel rooms, a woman's right to advance her career in the hospitality industry would be severely jeopardised, their ruling said.

"It is undeniable that women have excelled in the hospitality industry not only in this country but worldwide," the judgement said.

"And the feminine touch indeed lends grace and elegance to the hospitality industry, which grace and elegance is not inherently suited to the male disposition," it added.

Anoushka, a student from Europe who has just finished a bar tender's course in India, said: "It's a great thing. I just hope it works because things take a long time in India to change.

"People are open about drinking but they can't be open about talking about it. So hopefully things will change."

Lawyers representing India's federal government and the local government of Delhi have not said whether they will appeal to the Supreme Court.

emyesbee
01-17-2006, 12:33 AM
madu = cow

vasan
01-17-2006, 12:34 AM
மது --> any alcoholic drink
மாடு --> bull/cow in general, non specific gender
காளை மாடு (அல்லது) காளை --> an young male bull, short form often used (figuratively) an young man
பசு மாடு (அல்லது) பசு --> cow, short form rarely used (derogatively) to refer a woman
மாது --> a woman, often implied in sexual tone.

madhusudhan is another name for Lord Krishna; slayer of demon madhu (as per one website I saw)

vasan
01-17-2006, 01:01 AM
மதுசூதன் is another name for Krishna/Vishnu. madhu and kaitabha are two asura-s in puranams, and since Vishnu killed, both he is known as the slayer of madhu or madhusudhana..

no relation to tamil name for alchohol. :) (though you might want to call alchohol as a demon.. :wink: :P)..
