A Walk In The Park

Chhaganbhai enters the park, begins walking...he walks for @ 10 minutes. Person opposite' O ho ho Chhaganbhai'...

Chhaganbhai says' O ho ho, Maganbhai'...he then turns round and begins walking with Maganbhai. Another 10 minutes-

'O ho ho Chandrakantbhai'....and, the reply comes ' O ho ho Chhaganbhai, Maganbhai'....so, Chandrakantbhai turns around and begins walking with Chhaganbhai and Maganbhai.

A few more minutes: ' O ho ho Vakilbhai'....and, the reply comes,' O ho ho, Chhaganbhai, Maganbhai, Chandrakantbhai'....The three turn around and begin walking with Vakilbhai.

I walked ahead of the quad team, and took a different route after this.

After @ 45 minutes, when I came back on the route, there were about 15 of them....I grinned and continued walking.

Finally, finished the walk- went outside, had the 'Panchamrut' mix of haldi/tulsi/adrak/green tea/...? that a guy sells outside the gate, and began walking back towards my Aviator(2 wheeler)...on the way, I spotted Chhaganbhai, Maganbhai, Chandrakantbhai, Vakilbhai and 16 others, all sitting on plastic stools in a circle(there's a place reserved from them from morning, it seems, by placement of these stools, and no-one parks their cars/2 wheelers there)....all were having those small plastic cuppas of tea, alongwith some of the current fruit of the market, and, of course, some farsaan.(It looked like that, from where I was...but, I didn't peer hard enough to embarass them or myselves).

And, thus endeth another walk in the park!!:)Good fun.

I love the way Gujjus talk! Its their hand movements and the way they pronounce things. They're really a heart warming bunch
