A cup of morning tea with biscuits… that’s my time. I love this time. I’m sure you love it too. Dipping this biscuit into tea
An idea struck to me,-
One day, ParleG looked around
And very soon, he found
There were many like him
That could be called- His Brethren.
He obviously felt threatened
He was quite disheartened,
So, he instantly decided
To get a survey conducted.
The summer break was in full swing
Now, that made a bell in his mind ring.
He thought he had heard his mistress say-
A get-together was to be held
On the evening of Sunday.
There’d be biscuits, delicacies and pastries too
With lots of fun and play to break your solitude.
The time was fixed
And ParleG got down to work
He always worked hard,
And work he’d never shirk.
So, to get things started,
And everyone excited
He created a ballot box
So, they all pulled up their socks.
Names were written on a big score board
In Sunfeast Glucose’s beautiful writing
Horlicks said that he could afford
To create a jingle if anyone would sing.
So, Milk Shakti pitched in
And started humming merrily
There was Tiger on the drums
And the Mike was taken by Doodh Patanjali.
There was noise, there was fun
The party had just begun.
Biscuits moved round on tables
Waiting impatiently for their turn.
The guests danced and ate.
While we waited for our fate.
Then Parle Gold appeared
Such a company you’d never heard.
Then voting began
We looked at our clan
Each one desperate to win
As the votes dropped in the bin.
The suspense was all over before long
On every one’s lips there was a song
The winner declared was Parle G!
He jumped high and danced in glee.
He was definitely filled with ecstasy,
To see the jocund company.
His eyes were set on the newspaper kept bare
He couldn’t help looking at it and stare.
Which state was it?
He really did not care.
Parties teaming up together
And enjoying the dance of democracy
Weren’t they made of the same flesh and blood
They hardly remembered their legacy.
And then to ParleG, a thought did occur
Weren’t they made of the same flour and sugar.
So, he looked with delight at his kith and kin,
He had realized, they were all- His Brethren.
