Simple, let’s just raise the minimum age for alcohol consumption from 21 to 25. A youngster can purchase beer at the age of 21. Other hard liquors are to be consumed only at 25.
You can get a driving license at 16, marry at 21 but can’t drink until 25.
I guess, the state of Maharashtra won’t have any young drunk drivers any more.
PS: I’m mostly a teetotaller but some laws are truly absurd.
There are some who would like to believe that in the new age of a power shift from the Western nations to the East namely India and China, India can claim the mantle of being the ‘new America’.
Though that’s very much in the realm of possibility, being the ‘new America’ is not driving on the right-hand side of the road. Besides the US of A, 162 other countries drive on that side of the road. None of them claim to be the ‘new America’ solely on that basis. In fact, the majority of the world drives on the right. It is the minority (76) including the UK and India that prefer the left-hand drive—a colonial hangover.
Kindly clean up your doggie-poo when walking your dog. ‘Civil Americans’ are not allowed to do that. They are fined.
Copying Hollywood movie plots in Bollywood, Mollywood and Tollywood does not qualify either.

The shocking news that fake pilots have been flying jumbos and airbuses for SpiceJet and Kingfisher has eviscerated the flying public. There exists widespread outrage.
An intrepid journalist decided to investigate and find out what genuine pilots in Mumbai city are up to , in the absence of jobs (taken up by fake pilots) in the private and public sector.
A few pilots have been discovered practicing their craft on flight simulators; the simulators give them a feeling for the real thing and are less expensive on their pocket-books.
Other licenced pilots have been discovered at Lions Park, Juhu, pretending to fly the concrete airplane.
Yet, other pilots have made it a daily ritual to watch air planes take off and land at Sahar and Santacruz aerodromes.
It has been learnt from reliable sources that the Indian government will be floating tenders for private ‘fake’ airlines who will be allocated ‘fake’ routes.
Details of the tender bids will be advertised in the online journal “Faking News”.
