A New Delhi reporter interviews Ranjit Surabhai, a senior politician in the Lok Sabha.
Having covered most current political topics, the reporter asks him about his attitude toward whisky.
“If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I’m against it. But if you mean the elixir of a New Year toast, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I’m all for it. This is my position, and I will not compromise!”
