Living to eat -8

The Last Supper

This is the last in the series and I assure there won't be on encore because I am moving on to more meaty things, like the shenanigans elsewhere.  So, keep watching this space.  It was fun determining whether our montris live to eat or eat to live, except of course for my many trips to the Secretariat only to find the official not in his/her seat and for keying in of all those exhaustive details.

  My fingers still hurt and it only increased the chances of my getting carpel tunnel syndrome.  But don't thank me -thank Sonia Gandhi whose idea it was to give Indians the only weapon (The Right to Information Act) we have to fight back, because we still haven't learnt how to use the ballot box to benefit us yet.  Even so, it was a burp-worthy feast for me.
