Do we really need tea to be our National drink, lets vote it out i can bet the Monk will win this battle
Now that the Independance Day is gone and we have all done our bit for the nation by tagging each other to India flags, let me make a point that is not jingoistic, but is of immense importance to national affairs.
Few months back, the Indian government announced that Tea is going to be made the National Drink of India.
What really happens when something is declared as National? The tiger is our national animal, and no one gives a fuck. Hockey is our national game, and has as much fan following as Tushar Kapoor. Does declaring something as ‘National’ give it some special status or benefits? If yes, why is hockey in a dilapidated condition? Why do we only talk about tigers when a telecom company reminds us how many of them are left?
Is there any purpose to declaring something as ‘National’? Or is it just a symbol?…
