As the saying goes, you can keep alcohol away from a Keralaite but cannot keep Keralaite away from alcohol (many communities in India will fight to owe this tagline).
Given the recent Supreme court ban of keeping bars atleast 500 mteres away from highways, this bar in Kerala comes with an innovative way to jump the ban (HT MR blog). Moreover, the ban seems to be inspired from an old Malyalam movie where similar ban was imposed due to religious sentiments..
Superb stuff. Despite umpteen instances showing such bans rarely work, the high officials keep at it..
