It is ab­surd to man­date that mas­sage par­lours must not al­low peo­ple of one gen­der to be masseurs for those of an­other. If the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion is wor­ried that many of the par­lours have be­come shady places ply­ing the flesh trade in the garb of spas, the so­lu­tion is not to seek to cre­ate ‘san­skari’ par­lours. CCTVs at en­try and exit points and record­ing de­tails of every client will, if any­thing, only add to the no­tion that the en­tire busi­ness is shady. This is a case of throw­ing out the baby with the bath wa­ter. El­e­men­tary polic­ing can flush out the of­fend­ing par­lours without tar­ring all of them with the same brush and thereby killing the en­tire busi­ness.
