Pankaj Raj Gound, who is posted in Deepka in Chhattisgarh’s Bilaspur district, wrote to his station master requesting for a week-long leave so that he can stay at home and eat chicken. A picture of the application bearing a stamp of the station master of Deepka has now gone viral on social media.

In the letter he states that he ought to stay at home for a week and eat as much chicken as he can before the beginning of the Shravan month. The month of Shravan that lasts from July till August and is a Hindu festival that prevents Hindus from consuming any form of meat during that period. In his letter he has also mentioned how the month long abstinence will make him weak and unfit for work. Therefore he has requested with ‘folded hands’ that he be granted leave from June 20 to June 27.

In the end, he also mentions how he will use the week-long holiday to stay at home and eat chicken which will give him the power to work for 24hours a day.
