In vino veritas!

(In wine lies the truth)
(Also, why I have my two glasses of red wine everyday 🙂 )

Got to know this from an email from my friend Karthik Mani via Raj…

From Herodotus’ writings…
If an important decision is to be made, they [the Persians] discuss the question when they are drunk, and the following day the master of the house where the discussion was held submits their decision for reconsideration when they are sober. If they still approve it, it is adopted; if not, it is abandoned. Conversely, any decision they make when they are sober, is reconsidered afterwards when they are drunk.

    Robert Mondavi attributed his long life to drinking an entire bottle of red wine every day. You’re slacking. 😉

    I think the Taleles might need to adopt the Persian decision making process!
