Our parents and grandparents used to live in villages and led simple lives. Due to this, they could keep mental stress at arm’s length. They seldom suffered from diseases like cancer, heart failure, diabetes etc. Life today is poles apart from what it was just two or three decades away. Consuming a cocktail of stale non-vegetarian food, liquor, and indulgence in unethical competition has made life unbearable at times.
Now-a-days, rich businessmen, politicians etc, drive to places called ‘resorts’ to unwind and relax. Paradoxically, they do more of the same evil things they did at home in such places where there is no constraint on them.
The resorts are generally located in the outskirts of cities, and offer most amenities that star hotels give. The small crowds who come to ‘relax’ indulge in binge eating and drinking, and resort to many types of immoral and sinful behavior. Thus, resort-going does them great harm. During periods of political instability, MlAs are herded in these resorts, and intense bargaining takes place to win their loyalty. Such practice is called ‘horse-trading’.
