About fifteen years ago, I was visiting a family function in a city in central India. Taking a stroll through the streets, I came across a calf (bovine), perched on one side of the street. Such sights are not uncommon in India, and the rest of the world now has come to terms with how Indian streets have all kinds of animals on the loose. This isn’t about whether that’s right or not, so I will stick to the story.
NewsReporter: Mr. Gehlot, what’s the Govt. doing..
CM Gehlot: We’ve sent an inquiry and authorities will be following up.
NewsReporter: How much time before we can see the reports..
CM Gehlot: We just won the Panchayati elections, we’re celebrating that “arre abhi to uski khushi manaiye aap log, Congress ne kitna bhadiya..“
…err, cut it…
Seems like this bugger has more to celebrate than the newly HIV positive children.
Me: Has been 25 minutes already, if they don’t come back with the order in another 5 minutes, we’ll get it free.
Ex-manager: I’m looking at that guy in white shirt, he’s the most useless guy not doing anything at all while these folks serve..
Me: Well, he’s the manager.
Not to be politically correct, but this was really all in good humor. ;)
She: हाँ, मैने भी सुना है। कल देखने चले?
She: तो फिर सुन कर क्या किया?
Me: बस सुना और तुम्हे सुना दिया।
