All wholesale commodity markets, including those of metals and bullion, will be closed tomorrow on account of Holi. The BSE, NSE, forex and commodity futures markets will also be shut. The Equity and money markets both will be closed on the occasion of Holi and it will also be a dry day tomorrow all over India.
The most dreaded day for an alcohol lover is the no-alcohol day. Dry Days are specific days in India when the sale of alcohol is not permitted and there is nothing much you can do about it. These days are either of religious or national importance, which is why liquor shops and bars are prohibited from serving alcohol to customers. And especially having a dry day on weekend is the worst of our nightmares. It is advisable for the 'lovers of bottle' and 'holders of glass' to equip themselves and have ready stock for such days. After all, drinking at home isn't really a bad idea when one can't go out for a drink. To the rescue of all those who do not want to give the bottle a miss on dry days, there are 'heavenly places' in Mumbai and Delhi where one can beat the 'dry' blues. These special spots serve liquor apart from the five-star hotels all over the country on dry days.
