In Conversation With—An Old Man

I had 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.

Thank you very much!
