I am an educated person so I know I cannot wear a bikini for a wedding but the recent remarks by Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party MLA Lavoo Mamledarwho  has asserted that bikinis are against Indian culture and, if at all, Goa should have private and paid “bikini beaches “has left me angry, speechless ,

I love salwar kameez , sareer, skirts, jeans and bikini so naturally education and family has made me aware of what to wear when, then why do I need the law custodians to tell me what to wear?

Why In India woman are being treated like this????
