So here’s another one from the trip. A mother-daughter conversation (family: bottom right in picture) overheard in the toy train from Kalka to Shimla.
Mom (to daughter): Here. Read Hello! magazine. You haven’t read this month’s issue.
Daughter: *shows disinterest*
Mom: No laziness. Read.
Daughter: *reluctantly reads*
(After the reading is done)
Mom: So tell me. When did Yash and Avanti meet?
Mom: Tell me something about their home.
(The tutorial goes on for long. After some time, the girl asked her brother for her pair of sunglasses. Her mistake – she asked in Hindi)
Mom: NO! Ask in English
Daughter: OKK!! Give me my glasses.
Mom: NO! Say, ‘Give me my SUNGLASSES!’
Daughter: *sigh* Give me my sunglasses.
