Maharashtra ban

Sir, — Kudos to the Maharashtra Government for banning persons below 21 years from entering pubs, beer-bars, etc. The Central Government should come out with a similar law covering the entire nation and extend it to tourists as well.

Sir, — This will greatly reduce the threat of substance abuse and other related diseases among minors and college students.
