Randeep Ramesh: Indian dream seduces Tibet’s exiled young

From Guardian Unlimited:

Between the Grand Trunk Road and the banks of Delhi’s Yamuna river, a series of dimly lit shacks is all that remains of one of the city’s liquid landmarks: a sour barley beer called chhang.

Chhang had been produced by who came to more than 40 years ago. Cheap and available, the milky-white liquor was the drink of choice for many north Delhiites, especially students and truckers, who would munch noodles and knock back booze under peeling posters of Bruce Lee.
