The rave party bust by the Pune police on the Holi weekend is the biggest of its kind so far.
In attendance were the young and restless from all spectrums of life. Models, air-hostesses, IT employees, the call centre crowd. It was as if the historic Sinhgad Fort had become one huge trance music zone.
Also in attendance, the police found, were significant amounts of drugs, including Ecstasy, and alcohol. More than 200 persons have been taken into custody.
What does India's youth think of rave parties? Are they a bad influence, a corrupting experience where sex, booze and drugs have free play, and hence to be banned? Or are they expressions of youth, and hence a fact of life?
Tell us what you think.
