If one wants to be a law-abiding tippler, one must head over to the Excise Station, where, under the watchful portraits of Hanuman, Shivaji, Ambedkar and — most relevant to this exercise — Gandhi, sub-inspector Shahji Shinde will make you one.

I would rather have India without education if that is the price to be paid for making it dry. Drink is a bad, filthy, unclean, degrading habit.
