No, I'm not referring to the rave party on the outskirts of Pune which has been hogging the headlines. This is quite another case of elders ki zyaadti - on happy young Haryanvis. TOI dt Mar 5 2007 reports: "Haryana caste court bans DJs at weddings"
Haryana's Ruhal khap (community) which has a presence in 63 villages, outlawed DJs and warned anyone violating the diktat to be ready with a fine of Rs 11,000.
So no more remix numbers at baraat parties. The ostensible reason:"With DJs, youngsters dance under influence of liquor and sometimes misbehave with girls and women..." Ah, but there's more.
"Very importantly, due to high volume of music preferred by these DJs, people can't milch buffaloes and cows early morning as the animals are unable to sleep at night."
With real news like this, what will happen to humour magazines like ours ... !
