Indian Cabinet Minister and Congress leader Salman Khurshid says, "I was made the Law Minister and asked to work with a pen…sure I will work with a pen, but with blood as well." Watch the following video:

What we the mango people can infer from this statement is that either the animated, courageous, mettlesome Law Minister wants to become a butcher or a surgeon, or wants to remain at his post, but dispense justice in a bloody way. If it is the latter case, we can imagine a few scenarios:

Case 1:
Supplicant #1: Your Lordship, this is my neighbor, Murgichor. He has stolen my hen.
Salman Khurshid: Bring the stolen hen here. I will cut it myself as I want to work with blood. And then the thief will clean it as a punishment.

This Is How I Celebrated Gandhi Jayanti

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
(2 October 1869 - 30 January 1948)
It was October 2nd and I wanted to write something about Mahatma Gandhi, when, out of the blue, I was required to tend to three monsters. My sister asked me to pick up her three kids from the bus stop on their return from school as she had a dinner meeting with her clients. Just because I do not go out to work doesn't mean that I am available for babysitting every other day. I have plenty of unfinished tasks at home—a long list of to-read novels, half-read articles, half-finished blogs etc. etc.
