Chicken and me

Life is full of ambiguity. There would be times in life when one would have to select between two paths...one which you would love to do, the other you must do. Today I was in a similar situation. I had to give a test at 8 PM and at the exact same time there was tandoori chicken for dinner. Yes ppl u heard me right TANDOORI CHICKEN in mess. Just imagine the scene ......you are the first guy to the mess and you get a chance to select all the best pieces and feast ...yummmyyyyyy...but alas I had to go for this exam. alas I had to contain my temptation for a damn exam. My brain though was not agreeing to give up easily and so i had to convince it by promising that I would be one of the first guys to come to the mess from the exam hall. Probably the temptation of the chicken helped me today as my brain completely cooperated and I performed satisfactorily in the test. As the clock stuck 9 I could smell the spicy chicken.

I was helping myself to another serving, when I heard some one ask "Dude...arnt u a brahmin? how come you eat chicken?" I wanted to reply to the question but my brain being in the best of spirits, efficiently decided to ignore the question and concentrate on the most important job on hand ie to put chicken and more chicken into my mouth. Now that I am done with the job, I have decided to answer that question. I eat chicken because.....its there to be eaten. If not me then some other lucky soul. I am being targeted by the chicken industry as I fall in their target segment and they are doing a impressive job in marketing. My poor and innocent soul has given in to their marketing strategy/technique. I know all this sounds crap but who wants a reason to eat?
Any ways asking a Hyderabadi why he eats chicken is like asking a Briton why he speaks English or asking Salman why he removes his shirt. So I end the post by dedicating this to the first ever hen/cock which was ever cooked by a human being as that gave humans a reason to live. May God bless its soul and may it be reborn as a hen/cock again so that it can be eaten again. Amen

Ah!! The long standing conflict between succumbing to carnal pleasures and pursuing eternal glory......

Too loaded for too small a problem....hmm as to the chicken part...i guess you chose the road less traveled given that you are a brahmin....

But let me tell you this... none of your friends would really believe that your are a brahmin unless you explicitly tell them :)
