With all the political fiasco going around country, there are a few people who firmly think the candidates contesting the election are fully deserving of their votes. No, I am not standing up for election. I am merely suggesting a candidate. Food, yes FOOD! Before you start thinking how ‘the perfect aroma, flavour and appearance’ can rule a country- Let me give you nine pointers why Food should be the leader.
Food gets people together:
One thing saas bahu serials have taught us is that the Indian family always has dinner together. Including the vamp, the 210 year old ba, the woman who has had 8 plastic surgeries, the man who has just returned from the dead, and the uncle who does not know what he is supposed to do.
Food doesn’t fight. People make food fight.
Food has no intention of fighting. Infact two foods enjoy hugging each other. See French Fries and ketchup. We make food fight. Really.
Food can get people talking.
Punch someone they will smile back at you. But, feed him two bowls of wasabi. . .well, he will tell you even his secret love for twilight.
Food can get unwanted people to shut up
See, the basic idea of food is…ehh wait… nyom nyom nyom nyom. . .never mind.
Food is not racist. It is beautiful no matter the colour.
The best example here is chocolate. Dark, white, mix them both together, add peanuts, do whatever you want. It still stays so ‘aah’.
Food stops people from committing crime
If you feed people enough food. They will just too darn lazy to climb walls. Especially after a tall monstrous glass of lassi.
Food never hurt anyone
Unless you throw a large pumpkin on someone’s head. Or a watermelon. Or an entire cow. Though, an apple on the head is an invention.
Food does not mind being shared
Food is for everyone. Everyone is for food.
Food cannot be bribed
You cannot bribe good food. For good food to come, you have to believe in it and it shall treat you.
So, go on. Vote for food. If not the President, I would marry food (only if I could). For now, it is my imaginary girlfriend.
