“To err is human, to forgive divine.” However, in this digital world, everything you post on social media stays forever. And sometimes people can’t help but laugh over your silly mistakes. Especially, when it’s a hilarious goof-up by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The Ministry of Home Affairs Facebook page recently shared a now-deleted image of 2 bottles of whiskey along with chakna. Yes, you read that correctly. While posting pictures of the relief work in cyclone-hit Bengal, their Facebook page accidentally included the alcohol bottles with an array of snacks, reports India Today.

The error was quickly rectified as top officers expressed concern. However, even though the post was taken down, many people managed to take screenshots of the hilarious faux-pas.
From questioning their choice of alcohol to admiring their WFH benefits, here is what people had to say about the ‘drunken state of affairs’:

For me pertinent question is – who is handling those bottles, not the handle.

You'd think employees of the Ministry of Home Affair would atleast be drinking atleast VAT69 or 100 Pipers.
