"If you genuinely want perspective, India has one of the LOWEST per capita consumption of alcohol in the world - lesser than the UAE!"

1. Most of UAE's "consumption" comes from Duty Free Sales at its airports in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. The rest of it is by expatriates since non Muslims are not allowed to buy liquor. I will not be surprised if the UAE ranks very high globally.

2. Indian figures are under-reported due to illegal manufacture and liquor bought in by international passengers (2 litres are allowed per passenger).

3. In AP, the annual license for running a liquor outlet ranges from 35 lakhs in small towns to 1.25 crores in cities. Such fees cannot be sustained unless there is massive demand.

"Appointment of the judges is no longer with the judges. Which for India is a bad thing. In England, it was perfectly okay. They have a different ethos."

At least he is honest. He genuinely believes Indians are not enlightened enough to practice democracy. He and people like him should be reminded that the country is governed by the constitution that clearly lays down the process of judicial appointment - that executive has the final word.

The starting point is not the collegium that came into effect as result of the vedict of 5 judges in 1993 but Ambedkar's constitution that came into effect in 1950.
