Brinjals on a high!

The humble 'baingan' is sure making waves. Even as the BT Brinjal controversy rages, comes the news that farmers in Gurgaon have found a new way of not only multiplying the yield of ordinary brinjals but also improving their shape!

These farmers have discovered that brinjals, like humans, love alcohol. They sprinkle alcohol in the soil right from the time they sow the seed, and the plants respond by increasing their yield manifold.

Agricultural scientists, however, believe that there is no scientific basis for the claim as alcohol evaporates within 10 minutes of spraying.

Brinjals can't talk. But, as the farmers have discovered, they love their 'chhota' too. And how! The next time you feel a little tipsy after having 'bhartha', know that the brinjals came from Gurgaon.

ROFL! I bet these Jat farmers were hiding in a brinjal patch and drinking when their wives found them...In their haste to escape, they spilled some of their liquour and the next morning they found nice brinjals...

I've heard about Kerala farmers using Coca Cola as a pesticide and succeeding. Has something to do with the soil there already polluted by the Coca Cola factory effluents. But this one is new to me.
