Couple of weeks ago… Probhita and I, dragging my son along, went to a hardware store. We were in the middle of a dialogue when the man at the shop chimed in, ‘One just a minute!’ Hindi speaking.. I don’t blame him.
Few days ago..
Me: “Nathan, can you get the pen from the table?”
Nathan: “One just a minute!”
Me (drawling): “I think you mean – Just a minute.”
Nathan: “Mummy, but that’s how they say it in Hindi.”
Was teaching him a little Hindi that morning.
