Under the influence of alcohol, you may lose your power of judgment. I recall one of my friends who shot himself under the influence of alcohol after his wife refused to cook food for him and his friends at 11 pm. When he said, “mujhe khana do nahin to mein khood ko shoot kar lunga”, to which she said, “shoot kar lo” and he shot himself.
Under the influence of alcohol, your crime becomes less severe. In the present gang rape case, all the accused persons were under the influence of alcohol but they were not caught at the same time. If they were caught with alcohol in their blood, their crime would have become less severe than what it would have been if alcohol was not found.
If alcohol is the major culprit than the person who invites people to drink alcohol should be punished as he was very well aware that he was inviting others to drink alcohol and after drinking alcohol, when they lose their judgment power and they may misbehave with others and indulge in violence.
If you invite people at home for alcohol party, it is your duty:
i. Not to serve more than 80 ml of alcohol
ii. Not to serve alcohol to people who have come without drivers and are going to drive back
iii. Or take their keys in your possession and get they dropped after the party
iv. Never serve alcohol to drivers and other peoples who are going to drive.
Drunken man is like a snake or an injured lion. Never heart ego of a person who is under the influence of alcohol. He may hurt you. In Ayurveda, there are three types of people Vata Pitta and Kapha. People with Vata personality can get drunk with limited amount of alcohol and people with Kapha personality can be sober even after a large drink of alcohol.
Under the influence of alcohol a person usually does not speak a lie and hence starts speaking truth which can provoke others if it does not go well with them.
However, if a drunken man commits a crime or is confronted with a powerful muscular man or a policeman, he often comes back to his senses.
