Bhaarat Mahan

Hey...I had some rather "Lovely" incidents during that transition from USA to India. Firstly, at the Barber's at New Park Mall. That lady was rather chatty..and seemed to think that I was an encyclopedia on India. (Heck! I've seen more of the US than India) :P
Then came the million dollar question: How much does a haircut cost in India?

Erk..my answer almost killed her. Rs. 20..so that's 40 cents! She looked like she was going to faint!

Then yeah, when I got back, a rickshaw waala who rides me from school to home quite frequently inquired where I'd been all these months..when I told him I was in the US, he wanted to know how much the "kiraaya" is for a rikshaw in the US. :/ erk erk erk erk

And uff!! Another one tells me...."Apna desh hi accha hai Udit ji, jo bhi keh lo. Wahan pata hai, ladke-ladke shaadi karte hain".

oho! erk. yes yes.

Apna Bhaarat Mahan. :P

welcome Raazi,

Actually ladke-ladke (guy-guy) shaadi (marriage) is not formal as yet in most of this desh (country) ... but the way things are going .. it's well on it's way

ugh! as if a rickshaw waala cares if its "legally" allowed or not. ;) :P Indian rickshaw waalas are a reflection of India's thought process, btw. You should sit with one of them someday. ;)

i would like to state that I myself was taken to school by a rickshaw for some 5 odd years if not more... and i think i can get a rickshaw for a reasonable price... not a common trait

Hey Raazi.. Thanks for blogging... And I agree... Indian rickshaw wallas are like the best people to get gossip and other such mindless information from...

back in the day.. how well a movie does was decided by the reaction of the rickshaw wallahs.. i wonder if it is the same?
