Talli – Well most of us know what the word means, and if you are thinking this is a Hindi term you are mistaken.Talli is born, bred and brought up Punjabi. The word means “Drunk”. Though as Shakespeare said “what’s in a name?” be it ‘talli’, ‘tunn’, ‘drunk’, ‘madua’, [Nationally] or bu, drunken, ólta [Internationally]; we feel at the top of the world, fearless, sportive, rocking and in control.

I dedicate this column to the days when our nation calls it a “dry day”. The day might be dry but it fills tears in our eyes since we did not build the stock in time. There are days when we know it’s going to be dry and others when it’s a sudden unpleasant surprise. Elections for example – they seem to be just another quarterly activity. But apart from the normal dry days the government makes you abnormally sad for you do not know if the beer & english wine shop would be open or not.

Special thanks to Gagan, Kaushik, Gaurav, Yogi & Anupam for inspiring me to write this column.This section is not going to give you innovative ideas of how to stock or the nearest thekka (Wine Shop) or brewery location. What we have thought instead is to inspire you to stock for the days when the spirit isn’t made available to us officially.

That’s called to spirit yourself with the Spirits :D … the literal sense of Inspired Spirits.. he he.. are you listening Anupam ?

Oops !!! Silly me I forgot to introduce myself, I’m Sashikant, hic… (the guy on the left in the above pic) along with my talli friend from work, Gaurav (on the right).
Yes I’m the famed Gadgets Guru.. hic….;)

I won’t be surprised to find people who don’t like my logic but hey… when you are high who cares if your logic is bought or not, just get me another beer please… :D Depending on the number of hits, I might be actually interested to post the name of the locations where you can easily access Madira (alcohol) during after hours or on dry days.

May the Spirit be with you.
