Why you should...
...gatecrash

  • Because you are as innocent as a baby and thus have no sense of shame.

  • Because you are an unabashed freebooter.Illustration by Sandeep Joshi

  • Because it helps you keep your wits about and think on your feet as you go about hoodwinking one host after another.

  • Because canít afford to miss the Miss Fresher bash at the girls college, where youíre not invited

  • Because youíd rather gatecrash than pay cash.

  • Because gatecrashing always opens new doors for you.

  • Because the world at large has not yet realised your brilliance and thus left you out of the party. You want to let them know what they are missing.

  • Because the success of a party is measured by the number of gatecrashers. Your presence makes the host feel that his invitees were the most sought after in town.

  • Because you donít want your status to come in the way of your mixing with the "with-it crowd."

  • Because you are a true socialist who hates elitism and canít tolerate a do wherein the sons of the soil are left out. You gatecrash in protest.

  • Because if you decide to go somewhere nothing can stop you, niceties be damned!

  • Because thatís the only way you may get to see Sonali Bendre.

  • Because how else can you sample those unaffordable Thai delicacies at a five-star hotelís food festival? You need to eat them more than any of those old hens.

  • Because you are young and adventurous. It is so boring to go only when you are invited.
