In a recent judgment passed by the Honourable Supreme Court of India, a 5 judge bench declared ‘The Right to have Nimbu Paani in summers and Hot Jalebis in winters’ a fundamental right. The SC passed this judgment in response to two PILs, one which was filed two days ago and another filed two decades ago.

“The SC has broadened the scope of Right to Life to include a right to life of respect and dignity and not merely animal existence. Similarly we hold that not having Nimbu Paani in summers and Hot Jalebis in winters would be sub-human ”.

“It reflects the constant struggle of human beings to do better. I mean, which other animal can make Nimbu Paani. They just have to drink water”, said Justice Nimbudaripad.

“The sweet, salt, spicy and sour taste of Nimbu Paani is reflective of our rich cultural heritage too which is an amalgamation of all cultures, of all tastes. Similarly we expect citizens of different religion to come together and make a strong citizenry just as various ingredient of Nimbu Paani make a refreshing drink”, the judgment read.

“Hot Jalebi is so very tasty in winters than no Indian can be deprived of that right”, said justice Bhalla, as large quantities of saliva ran down his mouth, wetting the whole judgment which ran into 1459 pages.

The judge, slightly embarrassed ordered the steno to print it again amidst vehement opposition by environmentalist arguing that so many trees were cut for those saliva wetted pages. It was decided to keep the pages in the SC museum’s almanac as a celebration of this landmark judgment.

“We also order makers of jalebis to make jalebis in desi ghee only. Oil should not be used. If this precedent is followed by America, where Indian dishes are relished, we might have another invasion in the middle east for want of oil in America to make Jalebis”.

Aggrieved by this Patrick Stark, an American said, “Buggers! At least we would enforce the orders of the court which would lead to oil scarcity”. Barbhajan Singh, in response to the American has reported to have something like ‘Oi! ni teri paaen di”. Barbhajan said that he was saying ‘Oi! Nimbu Paani dae’! Sach-chin Bendulkar, his friend however clarified that this is a ‘Punjabi swear word’.
