“What shall we drink?” Janet asked Divya.
It was the first time Divya entered a bar.Divya was born and brought up in a small town in India in an Orthodox Hindu family where alcohol consumption, even by men, was considered a sin. Girls in her family were not even allowed to go to restaurants alone. Divya got her first taste of freedom when she got a job in a metropolitan city .
