From Chinese Ganesha to nude beach outings: Manohar Parrikar suffers a bout of verbal diarrhoea

It was one of those days for Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar when he just couldn't hold himself back.

On Wednesday, during a seminar in New Delhi, Parrikar decided to share every stray thought and memory that crossed his mind. But his comments, meant to induce laughter (we hope), were not always in great taste.

Here are the gems from Mr. Parrikar's day out of the office

Said Parrikar when asked to comment on the fact that his 'kante se kanta' remark on terrorists appeared to have hit Pakistan like “mirchi”.

Said Parrikar, taking a long detour down memory lane, when asked about the growing unsafety across India. The point of this story? He didn't lock his door before heading out on this special outing.
