The ubiquitous “bhaiya” is back again.
In a saner world, “Bhaiya, ek cutting dena” would mean “Bother, give me a hair-cut.” But, we are talking about Mumbai. Sanity is what you won’t find here – no matter how hard you look. Therefore, the above statement actually means, “Brother, give me half a cup of tea.”
Even before I got to know the actual meaning, I heard, “Bhaiya, do cutting dena.” What was that again? Imagine my shock – who on Earth would want two hair-cuts at the same time?
I am now a wiser person.
