A bus journey..
i came back from home yday nd i use public bus transport. If you have ever travlled like this then u must be knowing ppl step onto bus to sell somethings.. listen to some excerpts of their advertisements-
First one came to sell Pens: "Bhai saab ye pen hai.. is pen me dekhiye ye refill hota hai ((kuchh aur bhi hota hai kya pen me?)) Is pen ki jo tip hai ye bahut fine quality ki hai, sirf adhe milimeter ki.. aap chahe to likh ke bhi dekh sakte hai.. usse jyda hui to pen aapko free me doonga".. ((how do u measure it is half mm only?))
Second one came to sell Pencil: "suniye shreeman ((every saleman calls ppl by showing respect)) ye dekhiye automatic pencil ((i was curious to see an automatic pencil)) aisi pencil bachho ko bot pasand aayegi.. is pencil ko sharp karne ki zarurat hi nahi.. bas ek sikka nikal kar neeche se wapis daal dijiye aur dekhiye naya sikka aa gaya.. isse achhi automatic pencil aapko kahi nahi milegi.."(( is this really automatic? if we have to change leads then can we call it automatic?? but who listens..))
Now third one stepped on to sell some Children's books: "Suniye sahebaan ((one more respectable word :lol:)) aapke gharo me chhote chhote bachhe to honge hi.. unke liye ye bot badiya kitab laya hoon me.. isko jitna marzi modiye ye mudegi nahi.. iske upar paani bhi dal jaye to ye kharab nahi hogi.. kyunki.. ye plastic illuminated hai.. ((does it light at night?)) iske har page ke upar plastic illumination hai ((oh! u mean lamination..)) aur itni achhi kitab hone par bhi ye bas das rupaye ki hai.."
by this time i was not only bored but irritated.. these ppl sell crap here and advertise for them as if it is the best thing in the world.. i was just abt to say mera sir dard kar raha hai.. and fourth one came to sell balm: "bhai log ((aur behen logo ka kya?)), agar aapka sir dard kar raha ho to ye lijiye.. sab dard ki ek dawa, spcl punjabi balm.. iske ek nahi aur bhi bot kaam hai.. raat ko jab bache ko zukaam ho jaata hai, bacha so nahi pata aur uske saath ma bhi jaagti hai.. us samay ye baam le aur usko laga dijiye.. bache ko chain milega, wo so jayega, saath me maa bhi so jayegi... ma bachhe dono khush.."((bravo! good logic))
There was one more, but i was so bored that i dint listen wat was he selling.. ((Yawn!!!)) At next bus stop, a person boarded the bus and kept the bag below someone else's seat.. it was occupying footspace of one person he said " bhaiya ji zara ise upar ((the overhead space above windows)) rakh dijiye".. reply: " arre sahab bhari bag hai upar rakhne utaarne me der lag jayegi yahi padhe rehne dijiye ((i will not move this bag)).. aap to samajhdar aadmi lagte hai ((thoda buttering kar raha hoon)), kuchh keh thode hi raha hai aapko bag ((dekhiye kitne pyaar se baitha hai))"... "arrey sahab aapka bag bolta thode hi hai jo mujhe kuchh kahega ((eggjactly)), me samajhdaar hoon mujhe pata hai((arre,good hai)), par samajhdar insaan ko bhi takleef hoti hai (( aap samajhte kyu nahi?))"..
