You know I overheard a lady talking over her mobile in the temple, I said to my husband even as we were returning home.
I guess she was telling who ever it is at the other end about the sari she picked up before the close of Aadi discount, he laughed.
No, it’s not about saris, I said. Also another discount has followed close on its heels, I added.
Must be for gold, he stated.
Aye, you are right on the spot for once. How did you guess? I said surprised.
Well, was the lady you mentioned wearing large diamond studs and half a dozen shiny gold bangles? He said.
Aye, your second guess really surprises me. How did you know? I said amazed.
Probably you were too keen listening to what the lady was saying on her mobile to notice the amount of fortune she had on her person, he teased.
May be, but still I am not able to understand how you could pin point the lady I was referring to, I said.
Not difficult at all, she was saying she had just returned from the jewellery shop in Mylapore and did not find the discount offered very attractive at all, he said.
You surprise me no end. By the way were you following this lady while she was doing the ‘pradakshanam’? I said in wonder.
Simple, you egg head. The lady having completed her pradakshanam must have sat by your side to continue her conversation in comfort, he said laughing derisively.
