ASOKA AS A TEETOTALLER

But the Queen again and again broached the topic. She dinned into his ears powerfully to eat an onion and timely. She pleaded and begged, "My Lord, your health is important. Life is precious. You need it more, and the country most. Every thing depends upon it now. Please swallow it as physic. It cures your ailment at once. Please take it".

After persistent appeals and constant goading Asoka agreed; first time in life to relax the conditions in his diet, he unwillingly swallowed an onion closing eyes and nose to avoid its sight and smell. As proved already, the onion killed the worm forthwith, and it passed out of the intestines as expected. Recovery appeared, and soon his health and strength started blooming to the astonishment of his subjects and kith an kin. He enjoyed sound, perfect health ever afterwards. Hail the discovery and long live the system. Asoka was thus saved from the untimely death. The queen deserves the highest award, as a matter of fact.
