Something I overheard today in our team. Our Project Manager was asking one of the team members what he thought about the Garden City. So he replied – In spite of people being educated and professionals in the Garden City, when someone converses with him, and gets to the question – “Where are you from?”, the following is what happens:
He : “Mein Ranchi se hoon.” (I am from Ranchi.)
Them : (after a pause) Oh! Woh Bihar gaanv ke paas! (Oh! Near the village of Bihar!)
He : Nahin, Ranchi Jharkhand mein hai. (No, Ranchi is in Jharkhand.)
Them : Haan, wohi, Jharkhand Bihar gaanv ke pass hi hai na! (Yes, Thats what I meant. Jharkhand is near Bihar village , isn’t it!)
He : #@!**/#@!
N.B: For those of you unfamiliar with India‘s geography, Bihar is a full-fledged state in eastern India and Jharkhand state was carved out of Bihar in 2000. Ranchi is the capital of Jharkhand (shown below).
