An item appearing in Raisina Tattle, the gossip column of the Delhi-based newspaper Mail Today, that proves once again that politicians know that the shortest route to a reporter’s heart is through the stomach.
Two points stand out in this decidedly parochial carrot-and-drumstick policy: 1) Minister Thomas‘s doubtless belief (pun intended) that all Malayalee journalists have a uniform fancy for drumsticks, and 2) The minister’s ignorance of non-Malayalee journalists’ secret appreciation of the vegetable’s famed aphrodiasical qualities.
Which is just another way of asking: why hasn’t a packet of drumsticks landed at the offices of sans serif, from the minister or from Malayalee journalists?
Or, to indulge in a bit of word play, has all this blogging over five years been to no avial?
