I think TASMACs are shutdown on Gandhi Jayanthi? But what if drinking in front of his statue? It’s happening in one of a lodge in Periyakulam where I once stayed for a night. There is a Gandhi statue and Ganesha idol in the courtyard of this lodge facing back a wine shop bar. What is there in closing the wine shops only on Gandhi’s birthday and making cheers the liquor remaining days in front of his statues?
It was quite hesitating for us staying there as a family for whole night and we moved out immediately in the morning asking our friend there to seek another place for accommodation. I later hear from someone that it was the only best lodge in Periyakulam… I only think the best itself seems worst; there is nothing to say about others. It’s quite dishonoring people drink around keeping the statue of the father of the nation in center. Wish they remove the bar or statue from there.
I was browsing through my flickr stream and find this photo I uploaded sometime and thought to share it, as today marks the assassination of Gandhi called Martyrs day
