MUMBAI LESSONS - 5

Scene : Local grocery store, after purchases

Owner: Aur kuch?
Me: Nahin, kaafi hai.
Owner: (starts calculating)
Customer X: Thambee, oru soda
Owner: Arun, oru soda kodu
Me: :O Ningal thamizha?
Owner: Kaun, main? Nahin, nahin... Main Marwadi hoon!
Me: :O :O

Moral of the story: If being polylingual is what it takes to sell, the Marwadis will do it!
