Abstract

It is well settled principle that customs followed for a long time, without any interruption becomes law. Here “without interruption” means without complaint from people belonging to the same society which practice that particular custom. But there are few customs which are never complained still have serious impact on future. One among those is high prevalence of opium (amal in local language) in the western Rajasthan. People belonging to western part of Rajasthan include opium in all their sorrows and joy. They consider it crucial for social bonding hence include it in all their ritual since birth of a child to death ( 16 sanskars). The article in its length points out how this tradition is making youth addicts as the blind faith in traditions left no way to say NO to manwar (one requesting another to join them). It discusses the horrifying data which reflects that the problem is as serious as Punjab. Lastly, suggests some socio-legal measures to control the dark situation
