Their wonder drink: the politics of promoting urine...

Union minister Nitin Gadkari isn't the first political leader to suggest an unusual use for urine: that honour belongs to former prime minister Morarji Desai, who shocked millions round the world by advocating urine therapy as a cure for myriad ills.

Gadkari, a senior leader of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, was the butt of jokes on social media on Tuesday after he advised people to use urine to grow bigger plants.

In 1978, the late Desai caused consternation when he described urine as the "water of life" and spoke about the benefits of drinking urine. Desai, who was 82 at the time, attributed his longevity to drinking urine twice every day.

There are others who have propounded on the benefits of urine, whether from humans or cows. Full story...
