Poora State ko Gaanv bana diya????

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).

  1. This is so typical of ignorance of other regions all over India. All people south of the Vindhyas become Madrasis. Here it is a case of Poore re ion ko sheher bana diya.
