As India becomes more prosperous, the rate of alcohol consumption and alcoholism has increased. According to a report by the World Health Organisation, nearly one in 20 Indian men have an addiction or alcohol-related disorder.(1) Among these are executives and professionals, people from educated backgrounds such as doctors and medical students, who drink to cope with work pressures and executive burn out or drink socially as part of the culture in the workplace or in their social lives.

Alcohol-related crime in India has risen so dramatically in recent years that many states in India are imposing bans on the sale of alcohol. A study from 2002 found that alcohol misuse in India has been implicated in 60% of all injuries in the emergency room setting.(2)
