Athithi devo bhava!

The Fool Ministry is scheduled to hold a meeting with civil society (including stray dogs & cats, Crows & cows) to discuss steps for reducing food wastage at weddings and social gatherings.


"The issue of food wastage has been the subject of discussion since ancient times. The Animal Affairs Minister would be meeting to discuss the steps that could be taken to counter these trends" Minister said.

Terming the food wastage at social gatherings as "criminal act", Fool Minister had recently said the government could bring a new law in this regard whereby local ministers and their coterie will attend the function to eat the leftovers.

"The need of the hour is to stop such kind of wastage because there are still some percentage of population who get only one time meal (also includes Minister's PA & body guards)" the minister had said.

There are reports that food wastage is to the extent of 15-20 per cent, he had said, adding that the government will also look into the Guest Control Order of the 1960s, which mandates the hosts to include guests from "all walks" of life & society at marriages and other events.

Meanwhile, keeping the Indian tradition of rumor flying faster than air, Eggs and Tomatoes from salads were hurled at Mr.Hairball Ready to welcome him during his visit to attend a function.
