The Tamil Nadu Arasiyal has par-boiled down to "Free Arisi". While the "Old Man with no eyes" has promised Arisi for Re 2/kg, Amma tops him by offering "Buy 10 kgs for Re.3.50 and get 10 kgs free".
I feel that Amma's offer is sensible because there is a minimum buy catch that many small families may not choose to avail. This is certainly beneficial for the larger families with low income. A win-win situation.
However, the FM, Mr. P.C conveniently overlooks the catch and plays Arisiyal or Ricetics with the issue. God alone can save our India from this man.
Btw, I have no clue as to how much rice, a regular four member family consumes per month. Does anybody here know?
