JORU KA GULAM 13/8/2014

I MET JORU KA GULAM THIS MORNING, SAID MY HUSBAND SOON AFTER RETURNING FROM HIS MORNING WALK.

Which one? I said.

The one who is a marketing executive, he said.

But I know quite a few of them . Unless you are  more  specific I  can’t guess whom you are referring to, I stated  impatiently.

o.k. he is middle aged  and  a father of four children, he elaborated.

Ah, that rings a bell. What did he have to say ?  I hope he has not come out with fresh complaints about his wife and children who are all ‘mamma’s  babies’ I laughed.

No, for a change he was talking about the deteriorating  situation in our country at all levels, said my husband .

That’s good, probably his stock of complaints against his family is exhausted, I  said  feeling happy.

Or better still probably  he has asserted his position as the head of the family at last, I  added.

Ah, that sounds  better , poor man, sighed my husband.

What  is the opposite of jorukagulam? I  asked  him.

‘Sahib kagulam’ I  guess , he said after  thinking hard.

I feel  you are right and  the expression fits me to a T , I  said  looking straight at him!

Let’s talk about  the country’s future, he said  looking peevishly .
