The license raj is supposedly over in India but still there are plenty of things for which you need a license and getting those licenses are not easy. Among those is a bottle shop. Getting a license for selling booze in not an easy thing ad every year the license of such shops is renewed. Just before those licenses are to be renewed, there is a big sale with booze available at a very cheep price because they don't want to be left with a huge quantity of booze if the license is not renewed. This is why I was quite surprised to see this can of Beck's in my local shopping mall. More on it tomorrow.
