Random Alphabets: X for... X-Factor

On a a Saturday night at Capitol in Ashoka Hotel, there are scores of people fighting to get in, including a group of 20-something boys in tight jeans and black tees.
“No stags allowed,” says the bouncer firmly. They approach four girls. “Ma’am”, says one, “Can you help us get entry?”
The girls whisper. Minutes later, they all move to the door. “They’re with us,” the girls tell the bouncer and they all get stamped.
An everyday scene outside nightclubs in Delhi. But there’s a reason that single men are kept out. “It is necessary because single men in Delhi are rowdy. They drink too much and cannot handle themselves,” says Amit Nigam, F&B manager, Capitol. “Also, this controls the sex ratio.” Unfair, maybe, but needed.

But all men are not equal...I agree that Delhi men don't know how to hold their drinks, but people are there who know how to drink in a modest way....Unfair...
