Tea - National Drink


Mr Ahluwalia, during his address at ATPA's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations on Saturday, had extended his support to tea being declared as the national drink by highlighting several factors which builds up a strong case for according it the national drink status.


Err… ok. Does anyone (other than Montek Singh OR the Assam Chief Minister OR some not so bright individuals directly related to the Tea industry) really give a shit?

People will say just about anything. I mean, seriously – What difference does it make if Tea or Coffee or Budweiser is given the status of national drink?

For example – X doesn't like tea. Now, you could make tea the national drink or the international drink, X is not going drink tea. Similarly, Y really enjoys sipping on tea. It would be rather idiotic to presume that Y would now derive even more satisfaction from his cup of tea because he is now sipping on a national drink.

The point is simple. It doesn't matter.

Clearly, the Assam government (seeking to vigorously follow up the matter with the Centre) and Montek Singh have nothing better to do with their time. Sardaar ji – ab bas bhi karo. Lagtaa hai aapke permanently 12 baj gaye hain.

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao… Apni akal ladaao.
