Nobody goes to Assam to sell craft beer. The state in the north-eastern part of India is best known for tea gardens, beautiful wildlife and nothing much else.
Except, Prabhtej Bhatia did.
Bhatia is 27. Dressed in a casual violet tee and jeans, and a black turban. It is evident he comes from privilege. The gateway to his house in Raipur falls slightly short of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Gatsby mansion. His family owns multiple businesses in Raipur, Chhattisgarh—restaurants, schools, fisheries and liquor manufacturing and bottling. We are travelling together in his Hyundai Santa Fe, an SUV sold by the Korean car company in India, and not sold very much.
