In Tiruvallur district's Chinnamapet, an illegally run liquor store serves alcohol from 6.30 am onwards.

From 12 noon, a government run TASMAC (Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation) outlet takes over.

While this place is heaven for tipplers, residents rue that their youngsters and husbands are getting addicted to alcohol.

What is worse is that the number of young widows is increasing in Chinnamapet.

Watch the video below for details.
