Eavesdropping: Of roses and V-Day

leave a comment »

On the morning of Valentine’s Day (day before yesterday) three UP/Bihar types on a park bench.
First Guy: What is all this chakkar about Valentine’s Day? Are you supposed to give only red roses?
Second Guy: Nahin baba, you can give any colour – red, yellow, pink, white, orange… any colour you like.
Third Guy: Yes, but don’t give a black rose!
FG: So, are you carrying roses for the madam in our office?
TG: Are you mad? That khadoos will have me immediately thrown out! Hey, you got married just two months ago. Are you buying roses for your madam at home?
SG: No, no, the flowers will be very expensive today. Instead, I will give her a bar of Cadbury’s chocolate…
