This new ruling hit business owners hard, and many had to shut down their operations in just weeks. But one resourceful bar owner in Kerala, India devised an effective, yet low-tech, way of bypassing the law. The owner of Aishwarya Bar in North Paravoor, a suburb of Kochi, hired some workers and spent 3-days putting up a series of concrete blocks to turn the previously straight walkway into a maze that leads right up to the entrance. Now, the walking distance from the highway to his bar is approximately 520-meters, making it legal to sell liquor. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
