You down with OTC? (Yeah, you know me)

Chalk another one up for the harried urban Indian -- according to today's Times of India, cough syrups and other over-the-counter medicines may soon be sold at grocery stores. Which means that those crusty old men nursing treacly bottles of grape Benadryl can rejoice, as they'll save an extra trip in their daily routine (but seriously, who do these guys think they're fooling? Isn't it more efficient just to buy a sipper of whisky and be done with it? You can't have had the sniffles or a cough for ten months!).

I, for one, am excited. As an American, I first thought it was such a novelty to go to a fruit stand, then to a local grocery for staples, and make an occasional run to the chemist; but when you're working 10 hours a day, it doesn't leave much time for myriad menial tasks. Hoo ha!
