Liquor as prasad in Punjab

This is one of those “traditions” that the administration would never dare touch. Baba rode (Amritsar-Fatehgarh-Churian road) a jat sikh who healed and soothed thousands back in 1896 has a samadhi in bhoma, and its here that this strange practice is still being followed.

The legend goes that even the british rulers were devotees of the BABA. So you can imagine how the Indian police would be away from it. The 3 day annual festival has a pulling crowd of over a lakh of devotees thronging with packets, bottles, cases, buckets of liquor. So cocktail is the prasad at the end of the day.
