PARTICULARLY telling on the English way of life was my friend Deepa’s comment the other day (actually she quoted her friend, but never mind):
“Yaar, these people, they not only keep their children quiet, but they even manage to keep their dogs quiet! You’ll never have a dog barking at you on the streets! Amazing!”
It really is, isn’t it?
PS (for my uninitiated English friends): ‘Yaar’ is the Hindi equivalent of your ‘mate’.
