It’s here in our kitchens and on our tables only because the Mughals brought it here. But is the much-reviled but equally revered onion the only vegetable in the country which can pull down governments?
Madan Lal Khurana of the BJP had to pay the price for allowing its prices to shoot up to Rs 80 a kilogram. Now, it seems Amarinder Singh of the Congress has had to follow suit thanks to soaring inflation.
Not just humble cooks and chefs, even powerful netas, it seems, have to bow their heads (and wipe their tears) in front of the onion.
