Pseudo-Secularism

Ad in the Delhi edition of the Times of India, 2nd April, 2009.

Without touching upon the utter hypocrisy, absurdity and futileness of having the concept of a ‘dry day’, can’t the Government even proof-read its Dry Day announcements?

If today is the 2nd (which it is), do tell me how the 3rd, the 7th and the 10th constitute the ‘Next 3 Days’?

P.S: By the way, this is how Urban Dictionary defines 'Dry Day'.

That's more like an advertisement given by liquor outlets... "hey folks, we'll be closed on these days, make sure u have enough stock... fill up your fridge with beer. hurry"

And the definition of dry day... OMG

Ya IHM, I guess we can drink the rest of the days :-D Cheers!!!

In terms of secularism, was wondering whether Eid is also a Dry-day (not the urban dictionary kind) he he???

@Alankrita: Yes, I'm pretty sure you can...

Amar: :D

Saad: No need to show off, man.

@Tarun: What is the need? hmm..

@IHM: As Alankrita points out, you can be sinful on that day too. All it requires is a bit of planning and stocking up.

@Rakesh: I guess it is. I think all national hols are.
