In Conversation With — An Old Man

I’d an interesting conversation with an old man who was helping me to find an address. He was keen to find out my caste.

कहाँ के रहने वाले हो ?

भारत ।

भारत के तो नहीं लगते। ये तेज, ये स्टाइल तो भारत का नहीं लगता ।

ना जी । यही का हूँ—मुंबई का ।

जाति कौनसी है ?

इंसान जाति ।

हट, ये कोई जाति है क्या ?

यही तो है । बाकी सब आती-जाती है । बस, यही बाकी रह जाती है ।

वाह! गले मिलो यार ।

We hugged each other, and parted ways.
