Me and the preachers
The following is a description of a true incident that happened to me during my university days.
Lady 1 (a bit old): Hi, how are you today? We were just wondering if you would be interested in taking lessons in spoken English.
Me: *using my best accent* Umm… do I sound like a person who needs to take those lessons?
Lady 2: *laughs* No. You don’t. But anyway, we are just spreading some awareness about how people can stay happy, lead a good life and such by reading this book. *shows me a bible* Have you heard of Jesus Christ?
Me: Yes I have. I have also read some parts of the Bible once.
Lady 1: Which country are you from, dear?
Lady 1: And which part of India?
Me: Would you know if I told? *smile* I am from a southern state called TamilNadu.
Lady 1: *her looks change quickly* Are you by any chance… a ‘brahman’?
Me: *raising eyebrows* Thats ‘Brahmin’… and yes, I am one.
*Something changes in their look. Both the ladies look at each other and I can feel something being communicated*
Lady 1 & 2: *in a jumble* Well, thanks for your time. Have a nice day!
Me: *blink blink*
