New Year is the to leave all your worries behind and enjoy the end of a year, with 2019, its even special as the decade is coming to an end.

The party vibe can already be sensed in the surrounding, whether you are at your office, with friends or family. Everyone is talking about where to go drinking and we hope the discussion also includes the designated driver who can drive you back home safe or a plan B to home safely. However, like every year, with the current year ending, under Alcohol Laws of India, the calendar for the 2020 list of Dry days in the coming year is out.
