Kerala bar owner comes with ‘out-of-the-box’ solution to bypass new law on liquor.
Here’s a perfect example of ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking. After the Supreme Court of India banned the sale and serving of liquor within 500 meters of national and state highways, a bar owner in Kerala, India, came out with an innovative solution to bypass the law.
The new rule affected several business owners, and many bars had to shut down their operations after the ruling.
This resourceful bar owner came up with an unconventional solution to bypassing the requirement – by turning the entrance to his bar into a long, winding maze so that the distance exceeds 500 meters.
Bar owners across India are planning to use this bizarre workaround to bypass the Supreme Court rule. However, it remains to be seen whether the solution will be considered legal or not by the law enforcers.
