The Crotchet’s Corner

My perspective about all things inconsequential

Up there with the birds …


Tipplers, world-wide, have had to face up to a variety of “punishments” for their self-inflicted state of inebriation. It could be an unceremonious ejection from one’s favourite watering hole, a showdown with the wife upon returning home, or even a temporary spell in the lock-up while the effect wears off.

The panchayat in Kanesara village in Gujarat has thought of a novel idea to deal with drunks – a fine of INR 1,000 PLUS having to spend 24 hours perched on a tree.

And, if a friend visiting from outside is seen in a similar state, he gets to shell out an identical fine and share your perch.

Not sure if the fine increases if the individual continues to partake of the brew while ensconced in the branches, though.
