Why curb “Hic-Hic Huray” for Political Mileage?

Every elections start with tall promises from our esteemed leaders. Some promise to change the face of state, other promise to uplift poor. But, what Nitish Kumar has promised is exemplary.

He has promised to dry the throats of liquor sucking public of Bihar.

Imagine a “Liquor free” Bihar. The very thought makes me chuckle 🙂

Although his intentions are pure. I am not amused by the way our politicians have started dictating our way of life.liquor ban2

Kerala recently went dry (exception: few five star hotels), Gujarat has been official dry for years and now Bihar. What fun will Nitish Kumar have after banning Liquor is a question he can answer himself.

Probably he wants the law and order to improve in state or accidents to come down or unruly stray incidents to stay in check. Whatever his sane logic is. My solution to all these issues is simple.

Sir. You out of all the politicians demand huge respect for the work you have done for Bihar. How about you get rid of your new foe turned friend “Lalu Prasad Yadav”? The state will automatically become a better state by virtue of the good governance you have provided for last few years.

Why ban the Som-Ras, drink of our gods? The drink has kept me in high spirits for many years 😉 .

If statistics are to be believed, all states dealing with liquor ban have most intake of illegal liquor or country made liquor in them. Add to this, the huge loss to the state exchequer due to the exuberant taxes they make from liquor.

Despite these two facts, does it make sense to ban Liquor?

I am sure a state like Bihar does not mind this income coming from the “Untouchable” Liquor.

Lastly, how about we stop antagonizing liquor to gain a little political mileage? The country is mature enough to understand The Old Monk who provides us with wisdom in company of friends and the old monk who sits in the temple.

I am so tired of living my life as per the dictum of the leaders sent by my fellow mango men to assembly.

 “Drink sir, is a great provoker of three things….nose painting, sleep and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire but takes away the performance.” – Shakespeare
