No More Pastis in India…

Being in the military, as we know, brings with it certain advantages: among others, having a case of Ricard at a very competitive price used to be one of the “perks” of the armed forces of the world’s largest democracy. However, as suggested by an old saying, dating back to at least the 12th century and repeated continually by people who no longer believe in eternal life, “All good things must come to an end”. So, a decision from the highest summit of the Indian state seems to have been enough to put a stop to certain good things… and it is most unfortunate, knowing as we do that, for the moment, there is no alternative to pastis, the one, the only…

It is regrettable all the same that this tendency, inspired by certain great world leaders who might at least benefit from Pernod-Ricard’s beneficial effects on hair, that this endemic mania for protectionism should end, in the long run, in the self-destruction of the economy of this whole unfortunate planet.
