Healthy Tuesdays!!

Don't fall ill on Tuesdays - at least not in Gurgaon. The powers that be have decided that all chemists will remain shut on Tuesdays.

The decision comes in the wake of the government order to shut shop for commercial establishments on Tuesdays and thereby conserve some electricity. Chemists - due to their inherent commercial nature were selling stuff besides prescription drugs. So they were classified as DEPARTMENTAL STORES - would you believe that!!

So what happens if I need medicine on Tuesday... Well, nothing - literally!!

Here on forward - all sickness to be confined to Wednesday. And we let these jokers govern us ;-)

not only Chemists - even other commercial establishments (read offices like mine) are forced to shut down, and we are not even allowed to have Gensets that day! 20% of revenue kissed away, all due to some crazy logic of conserving electricity.
