Dave and Jenny, two New Yorkers, who have been blogging about their Delhi struggles, have a post on the market that exists here for used liquor bottles. No, not for the more honourable cause of recycling, but “because empty liquor bottles, we were told, are bought by certain Delhiites for a very clever reason: so they can pour cheap swill into fancy bottles that flatter their guests into thinking they’re being served the good stuff.”

Apparently, Sheila, their maid, had been stashing away the used bottles, sensing the market opportunity.
