Sour grapes turns very sour. Bangalore club on cover the page!

I had my own share of sour grapes as I did not apply on time and on return to Bangalore I found that it is impossible to become a member of this club. Without being a member of a club it is not easy to play tennis here in Bengaluru and I could also have gone swimming! Miss them both at the moment. 

 I wonder how busy these sport facilities are? It is said that these clubs are popular because of the liquor and that too at much lower prices. I am sure when the club started it was not under the supervision of the excise department.  Imagine anyone asking the gora babus not to imbibe their scotch on the lawns! 

If the excise department has its way, the club will be more like the many 'family bars' I see on the inside roads of our city. Dark and shady, you can almost visualize the old villains of the Bombay movies lurking in them.

I guess the issues will sorted out amicably between the Club with its dog in the manger attitude and those in power who are just waiting to get a hold on this much in demand club. There is bound to some give and take and may be some quotas will increased or added!

Anyway I have my own selfish dream. I envisage a situation wherein the powers that be are firm in their resolve to enforce the rules. Then droves of club members will quit in disgust  forced to drink in the dark dungeons. And the century long waiting list is diminished to nothing.

It is the only way I can sneak in as a member :-).
