Don't Peg Me

Only a Sardarji could have come up with this one.

This is an actual whiskey being marketed in the UK. The name is apparently based on a rather (inside) desi joke about what to do when you ask someone what drink they would like and they respond "Kuchh Nai" (Punjabi inflected 'Kuchh Nahin' meaning 'Nothing')... So, of course, out would come this bottle...







You can read more about this enterprising Scotch with a desi name here.

Well, let us see whether or not the Express Tribune ever comes out, given the fact that several people are in a huge rush to leave the paper even prior to the publication of its first issue - and sniffing around for other jobs

Why are they sniffing around for other jobs? What is going on at ET? Enlighten us!

"In addition to Kuchh Nai's unique flavour, its name gives it considerable added value in an Indian context. The deliberate pun in Kuchh Nai, which means "Nothing" in English, will generate a smile at least, bringing humour to the image of whisky drinking." beh
