Veg, Non-Veg??

Bird Flu has affected Indian (not IA anymore) which has started serving only veg food. I would have used the excuse as a perfect opportunity to bring in some variety in non-vegetarian (lamb, fish, praws anyone?). But, no Indian chickened-out. (excuse me :-))

And hence, now the air hostesses don't ask the famous question "Veg, Non-veg?", anymore. Which is good in a way -

Jiggy was once travelling in Indian Airlines, when this air-hostess (matron, said Jiggy) asked him the famous question.
"Sir, Veg or Non-Veg?"

Bear in mind, now that Jiggy's flight was delayed by 3 hours. It was 12:30 am and Jiggy would have slept, if only he wasn't hungry.

"Non-veg, please", said Jiggy, in his politest possible manner.
"Sorry sir, we only have veg", said the matron.

Those of us who know Jiggy know that IA and the matron haven't heard the last of it, since.

Update: Various other places, including Jet Airways, Railways and my office has stopped serving chicken. I am okay, as long as they will substitute it with edible stuff (meat, fish or seafood).

Being an 'Indian', I do have respect for age and aged aunties! :)
