Chicken, the new national bird

I like this one by Jug Suraiya. Chicken indeed. An idea with immense potential.

Imagine. From Butter chicken to Chicken 65 (how convenient), we own the bird. We can also commemorate/invent Chicken 47, Chicken 99. We can make movies on the lines of Chickenheart.

The ending of the piece is particularly apt.

Can't move mountains? Find convenient molehills, turn them into mountains, and then move them. That seems to be the recipe. Not just for the health minister but for the entire sorry mess which might aptly be called Indian chicken curry.
