It is disheartening to state that even after “enjoying” 70 years of independence, we Indians have to face restrictions and bans from entering the most popular destinations in the nation. It is as if the clock was rolled back to the British-era when Indians were subjected to oppression to accommodate and satisfy the needs of the outsiders. Although “Atithi Devo bhava” is one of the noblest practices of the Indians, common sense has to prevail when it comes to the cost at which it is practised.

It might be the concerns of privacy and will that made those hotels and organizations to restrict the possible entries. But, here are a few examples when people took it to a whole other level.

Free Kasol Café, Kasol, Himachal Pradesh: Being the first choice for Winter lovers in India, Kasol is always a jewel in the crown in North India. It is well-known for its peace and laid back attitude. But a restaurant in Kasol namely ‘Free Kasol’ discriminates against people by refusing to serve Indian customers. Just because the owner’s loyalty doesn’t lie with Indians! This cafe became infamous after a story of its owners refused to serve an Indian who had gone there to dine out with his foreigner friend went viral on social media.

The UNO-IN Hotel, Bangalore, Karnataka: This hotel which was restricted to the foreign population was constructed in the year 2012 in Bangalore. This hotel, being Japanese based, was dead-set on serving just the Japanese and no one else from India was allowed to enter the place. An investigation was carried out by the police, and the hotel was eventually shut-down, after only two years, on the grounds of racial discrimination! Unbelievable!

Broadlands Lodge in Chennai: This former Nawab’s residence which was turned into a hotel in Triplicane (Chennai) caters only to foreign passport holders and the Indians are not allowed in the lodge. The lodge has been given the pseudonym “Highlands Hotel”.

Sakura Ryokan Restaurant, Ahmedabad:  A Japanese restaurant set out Albeit a low-profile hotel on Gokuldham Sanand Road in Ahmedabad; it is still out of bounds for Indian folk and only Japanese are welcome here. To add to this plight is the fact that owner is an Indian! When asked the reason, he states that all his workers are from the north-east and that he receives many Japanese guests at his hotel. Allegedly, the persistent ogling by the Indian customers forced him to make the change.

Are we Indians really that bad to have as a company or is this just a clear case of discrimination? If we pander to such things we might as well revert to pre-independence India and hang up signs saying “No Indians and Dogs allowed” and accept being treated as second-class citizens in our own country!
