Kerala drinks more alcohol than it consumes rice, so so says a comparative study of annual liquor sales and food bill of the State. The statistic is alarming if you see how drinking problems among Keralites have started coming from the under 18 age group too. VR Jayaraj tells you how lost the State Government is in the glitter of profit even as Kerala is hurtling to a drinking disaster
reminds me of a little ditty that was written originally about my ancestral village, mayyanad. it is now true of kerala in general.
annam nasti, jalam pushti
the source of all untruth
not much food, lots of water
drinking is a major festival
