While on the topic of B@l@tk@rs et al, ..........
The family watching the stylish Shanti serial in DD
Dialogue from boodhi maa- uss Kamesh ko maaf nahin karoongi (or something to that effect)... usne mera B@l@tk@r kiya. so on and so forth- repeat 7723 times in a space of 30 minutes
Kid of the family perplexed & intrigued- yeh upkar kya hota hai?
On the radio the song plays- Towel mein bahar jaogi to halla mach jaega
Kid of the family whose hindi vocab is definitely very strong- yeh Sawan mein bahar jane se halla kyon mach jaega
She- relieved- because everyone will start screaming- you will get wet and fall sick if you go out in the rain
And cut to present
Mamma- when doctor cut your stomach and took Ojas & Tejas out and stitched you- did it hurt you?
Mamma- in an attempt to not gross them out- offcourse not- doctor gave medicine so that it did not pain at all. Quickly adds- but offcourse it will pain if you do it at home and all. Only doctors should do it in the hospital.
