If you are 18 years old you can vote, get a driver's license, watch an 'A' certificate movie and even get married (the legal age for girls).

But you are still not old enough to enter discotheques, pubs and dance bars, says the Maharashtra government; you need to be at least 21 to do that. Before you scurry around finding alternative hotspots to party in, you could tell the rest of the world what you think of the Maharashtra government's decision.

Does it mean you can't enter a disc to shake a leg and drink a Pepsi?

Does it mean you can't accompany your mom and dad to a restaurant if it serves liquor?

Would those 21 and above be able to better enjoy their evenings out with the teenagers out of the way?
