MILKING IT ALL
By Neel Anil Panicker
‘Dear Desh Bakhts, Modi Bhakts and Cow Bhakts (in no particular order).
Today is a red letter day for India.
As I hang here, suspended in mid air, my head buried deep in mud made purer by the wash of the sacred Ganges, I present before you my latest innovation__a 100 per cent home grown cow milk.
This fully home grown desi packaged cow milk is my gift to all countrymen who until now are being forced to buy low quality contaminated milk that not just drills a huge hole in their ever shrinking pockets but also leaves a bad day long taste.
Buy my milk, and you will have no more of all this. Plus, there’s one added benefit.
My milk is also a spy. Each packet is fitted with a radio fitted device; an antenna pops out of the all-white cow embossed carton, and is tuned to catch all voice signals from across the border.
So, dear cow worshippers, it’s time to show your desh bhakti by drinking hot BABAJI KA DOODH, and be the spy who came in from the cold.’
