It is mentioned in bold on the lower end of the beer can that "Consuming alchohol is injurious to health". Kindly keep this statement in mind as you are reading this blog.
On a personal level, beer means a lot to me. When my entire social world comprising of my so-called friends leaves me mind f*****.perplexed,agitated and irritated due to their unjust and unpredictable ways of behaving with me, I rely on the often criticized hero called "Kingfisher Strong" to get me through the after math of the situation described in the previous line. It is not that consuming beer will magically make me stronger or rational or calm,glorifying the consumption of beer like the modern day version of the infamous Magic Potion that was drunk by the Gauls, but it just allows me to forget about the problems and focus more on their solutions. Had i not been intoxicated, I would , more often than not, let the problems tie me down and keep the solution waiting in queue just like the commuters waiting in the hot,sticky and poverty filled weather at Anderhi Station's ticket counter.
They say one should only drink for enjoyment and not during times of mental instability and emotional adversity. I refuse as well as would refute that notion by simply saying "F.O". If you are facing a difficult time in getting rid of thoughts that are constantly oscillating in your mind ,irrespective of the reason , then gulping down a can of beer can surely calm you down for some time and maybe give you the solution that could stop the bombardment of thoughts that were revolving in your head. Notice that i mentioned "A CAN OF BEER", thus laying impetus on the quantity of beer to be consumed. Obviously you would be knighted as DevD if you consume large quantities of beer as if you had entered an "ALL YOU CAN DRINK BEER FEST" at some bar with a liquor enticing tag name like "Peena isi ka naam hai" or "Peene ke hai Chaar char din, baaki sab hangeover".
But there is no doubt that when your among friends and really wanna freak out , a can of beer can surely give you that initial thrust of FUN that would last the entire evening which could result in a lot of verbal assaults,physical activities and name calling.A very harmless scenarion until the "SOMEBODY GONNA GET A HURT REAL BAD" scene is reached. In my case i end up being the bakra who everyone teases and associates with certain girls whom i had said "Hi" to during the college days. Lame,but i suppose thats what entertains the crowd.
Once i was high on beer and i had taken a Virar fast train from churchgate in order to reach Andheri.Had i been sober i would have peed in my pants thinking of taking a virar fast in the first place.Anyway, The train was absolutely crowded and mobility seemed to be a distant dream at the time, but only because i was drunk, i did not think of the fact that i might not be able to get down at Andheri and instead I pushed,pulled and Maneuvered myself towards the exit and got out at Andheri.I had to face a lot of abuses and punches whilst coming out,but thats a different story altogether.I am dead sure i would not have been able to pull it off had i been sober.
My favourite form of beer is when it comes straight out of the barrel and goes right into my mouth. Obviously there are activities in betwen that are immaterial but yes....the important thing is that i got to relish and savour the taste of smooth,rich and beautiful beer. In reality the taste of beer is bitter in comparison to other aerated drinks. Initially i didnt like the bitterness but after few days of consuming beer, i fell in love with that taste and the rest as they say is HISTORY. There is a saying in hindi that "Sach kadwa hota hai", translated in english as "The truth is bitter".Lets apply a little arithmetic over here,
Beer = Bitter in Taste
Truth = Bitter
End result: Beer = Truth (I know some nerds might want to rubbish this equation.They can go drink the milk coming from Parsi Dairy as far as i am concerned)
They say the only universal truth is "Death". I wish to add that even "Beer" could be acknowledged as the other "UNIVERSAL TRUTH".
Even though i have higly glorified and promoted beer in this blog, thus making Mr M of the Bangalore IPL team even more happy post his team's loss in the final, I also affirm that it should not be had in large quantities and also not on a daily basis.
"OOO LA LA LA LA OO LE O"
