"It is a notorious fact, of which we can take judicial notice, that more and more of the younger generation in this country is getting addicted to liquor.
It has not only become a fashion to consume it but it has also become an obsession with very many. Surely, we do not need an indolent nation.
Article 47 of the constitution clearly casts a duty on the state at least to reduce the consumption of liquor in the state, gradually leading to prohibition itself."

That was the advice of the learned Supreme Court Judges. Report in TOI here. (Tip by Vatsan)
