The Lalit nightclub denies entry to me

in lifestyle •  7 months ago  (edited)

Tonight I was invited to a LGBTQ gathering at The Lalit hotel's Kitty Su nightclub at New Delhi.

Interestingly, I was denied entry to it as I was barefeet as usual.

Although I was expecting a possible denial as being barefeet is considered inappropriate by many upmarket commercial establishments, my friends insisted me to accompany them anyway and they get a bit embarrassed for how to react to this situation.

This incident reminded me of how a Maharaja Jai Singh (king of erstwhile Alwar State of present Rajasthan) was insulted when visiting a Rolls Royce showroom at London in casual wear. To teach a lesson to Rolls Royce, he later went there in proper royal attire and bought all available six Rolls Royce cars in that showroom. He employed all these cars in Alwar Muncipality to collect muncipal waste and garbage. This brought down the brand value of Rolls Royce and consequently its sales so much that the company was compelled to apologize to Maharaja of Alwar and offered 6 brand new Rolls Royce as compensation.

Then he accepted it as an apology but it seems that present day businesses have forgotten that lesson.

so just like Maharaja Jai Singh, when you are buying The Lalit hotel?

Ha ha ha! Unfortunately I don't have a royal ego. But I may refer to such events in some of my talks. Co-incidentally, I was recently invited to deliver a talk in an international fest scheduled for next year on my experiences of being barefoot. (But I ain't too sure for including this incident however.)

P.S.: Had to update this comment from my primary account

Someone should have a royal ego, it's not that you will teach them a lesson by buying it can be any other way like including the incident in the talk :P

barefeet or Messy hair or clothes Tattered ,
Often rejected by self-identification higher ,
