Major WTF stuff in this interview in The Hindu Business Line:
Sources say that Suguna has sold more than 53 crore birds since 2000, which is enough to circle the earth four times, at the rate of one bird per foot! The company’s Managing Director, B. Soundararajan, whose heart is in chicken, is far from chicken-hearted when taking on a dozen questions from Business Line.
And some questions:
After hatching, when a chicken emerges from the eggshell, does it say `hello world‘*?
Somewhere around 100 plus chicken take birth in the same berth, I mean, a single tray. They do greet one another, in their own way.
Your view on `chicken soup for the soul‘*.
Whether soup goes into the soul or not, it does go into the system for rejuvenation.
Why did the chicken cross the road*?
Otherwise you would not have known about the chicken! It would still be in the backyard of a rural house. Now, it has crossed the road to climb into the corporate house.
Should chicken be used in fight scenes for movie villains to fall amidst?
Wish they didn’t bother the chicken.
Lastly, which came first, egg or the chicken*?
I leave it for the person who can answer, to whom we shall offer several million… May be, eggs/chicks!
The rest of it isn’t weird, but this interview really shouldn’t be in the ‘Agri Biz & Commodies Section‘. A section on humour would be more apt. I wonder what Suguna Poultry Farms’ MD B. Soundararajan must have been thinking while answering these questions.
