Nation celebrates International Beer Day

International Beer Day was celebrated with much fervour and vibrancy across the nation today. People started thronging bars, pubs and other places in the wee hours to pay their respects to the king of drinks. President, PM and other leaders greeted the nation on the occasion and urged citizens to imbibe the 'better things' symbolized by beer.

Speaking at a special event organized in Parliament, President Pratibha Patil said “scams, defeat of the Indian team overseas, bloodbath at sensex and corruption symbolize the reality of our times. We are indeed going through a rough patch and need to look up to anything that offers hope and joy even if it is momentary”. Speaking at the same function, Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar said that the nation was now self-sufficient in beer production and the credit for this should go to his government and not some beer-guzzling calendar pedaling senile casanova wannabe.

Mallya's portrait was unveiled in the
Central Hall of Parliament few
days back
A special portrait of beer baron Vijay Mallya was unveiled in the Central Hall of parliament a few days back. The unveiling which was originally supposed to happen today to coincide with International Beer Day was however done last week, since UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi had to fly to US for a surgery. Senior UPA leaders addressed a small gathering which had assembled at that event and remembered the 'invaluable contributions' made by Mallya to the nation- including the Kingfisher Calender.

Mallya celebrated the day by giving away crates of beer to Kingfisher models, who were on a strict diet.

Dear B'Knight,
This is a fantastic piece in the honour of the nation which has with single minded devotion imbibed barrels of the brew in a sheer act of patriotism un-known to any other nation. The ancient script which enunciates " the more you imbibe the higher you fly" has been proved to be true. How ever my neighbour Ms.Padukone dis-agrees stating that the spirit stays active only for a few hours if not days as she experienced it first hand !
Vijay..never know how things change..oh sorry and did i say CWG...i meant CAG ;))) might still be a dream job :))
Thanks Bala for the visit and the generous comment :) Miss Kone and her spirit are quite well known in bollywood circles ;)
