A colleague R, who we all love to take a dig at for the rare gems of wisdom he occasionally throws at us, actually said these:
The discussion was about a recent cricket world cup match (Ind Vs Aus)
X: That was a super caught-and-bowled by Zaheer Khan da *machan!
R: Is that so? Was the catch taken at Point?
X: Dei, I said caught and bowled..
R: That is what da.. I asked if it was Ponting’s wicket!
Y: Planning a trip to Cochin da.
R: Yes machaan.. you must go.. Its a nice hill station..
Y: What? Its plains da, not hills..
R: Really? But when I last saw it, it was a hill station..
R is also famous for his movie reviews, just that the review is constant across the movies.. He’d genuinely call every Vijay, Ajith, Chimbu or Dhanush movie a “super padam”, worth watching with the family. What more can I say..
* a term of endearment in Tamizh to show you are pally-pally.. ‘maamu’ is one other..
See ya all next week…
