The tourist car that we were travelling in criss-crossed through the busy narrow streets of Madurai, a vibrant city in India’s Tamil Nadu state, famous for its colossal Meenakshi Amman temple. My wife and I were there with my sister in law and her friend early last year, before the pandemic began.

As we turned a sharp corner, I saw an advertisement showing a picture of a lady holding a glass, and with the words “Cool yourself with jigarthanda” written on the poster.
