lol, your gambling laws date back to the Raj?

There's really no legislative incentive to muck around with it. Those who don't gamble believe it's outright illegal and those who indeed bet jump over the law anyway and this doesn't cause any material disadvantage to the parties in power.
You could say the state could improve this via profit through taxation by legalizing and regulating it properly but in actuality, that's nowhere worth the cost of the amount of people it'll alienate who believe, for whatever godawful reason, that gambling is intrinsically immoral.
That's fake lassi. Real lassi shouldn't have any fruity flavors.
Interestingly, Indian desserts are very hit or miss for people. People like me who've spent our childhood in India (or at least most of us I think), are so used to super-sweet desserts that I still often find many 'western' desserts not sweet enough. Of course, in India, we used to have desserts maybe twice a month - not every day - so maybe that had something to do with it. My cousins born here generally don't like Indian desserts - at least not all of them - for that same reason. I think, overall, they are way too rich to have every single day, or have them in huge portions. I mean, in India, we used to have maybe a couple bites on the rare occasions we had them. The only dessert we had on a more regular basis was the five rupee flavored ice cones from the local lari guy as he used to come to our neighborhood every few days. Those weren't too heavy and you could eat them on a regular basis. Part of it was also that we couldn't afford that stuff every day - I notice that when I go back, it's changing - as people have more money, they tend to have the desserts more often now (at least from my limited experience) - and it's evident in the waist lines.....

Mango lassi seems to be popular more outside India than in it.
In Delhi, mango shake is far more popular and favored version of lassi is curd/yoghurt blended either by hand or in a blender and a bit of white butter (makhan) on top. It tastes best without any flavours.
Get well soon Yuvi!!
Love white butter, it's perfect with aloo parathas. One of the many foods I stock up on when I travel to India.
Couldn't be Warner with the armband tho, surely? I mean, he might be a genius in disguise but, to steal a Blackadder line, if he is it's a very good disguise.

Lassi is definitely a yoghurt. Enjoy my mango lassi's as much as the next Ravish.
