Eavesdropping

it was a Sunday and there was no metro.so the only option of getting to work was the Jadavpur-BBD Bag mini! given to my rotten luck,the only seat left vacant was one in the last row where a speed breaker feels like an earthquake.but this post isn't about my bus woes,but these two girls who sat next to me and their conversation.as a disclaimer,let me tell you that i have been blessed with the memory span of a goldfish,and this is the best i could coax my brain into remembering!

Girl 1 is a plump 17/18 year old in pink salwar and Girl 2 is another 17/18 year old in a black tee and jeans. i know they were 17/18 because they were talking of their HS exams and they were on their way to the ISI exam centre...
if i remember well,this was the day after the knight riders lost to some team in eden.

Girl 1: Shahrukh eto taka khoroch kore ekta poder team korte parlo na.
Girl 2 (evidently a SRK fan) : keno?dakh eta ekta khela.haar-jeet to legei thake.
Girl 1: Saurav ekta gadha.giye juteche arek gadhar sathe-batsmen dorkar batsmen.otogulo bowler niye ki labh!
Girl 2: shey to shob team ei golmaal ache.
Girl 1: ami to chai Shane Warne er dol shob shomoy jituk...eesh ki cute!
Girl 2: toke ei bus theke dhakka mere fele dewa uchit.
Girl 1: dakh jara khelte pare na oder ke team e rekhe ki labh? shob kota gadha.ar ekta gadhar moto gaan!kore,lore sheito harli.
Girl 2: tui kolkatar meye hoye ki kore kolkatar team kei kharap bolish?
Girl 1:Kolkata to bhalo,kintu team ta ekdom zoghonno (mind you its zoghonno and not joghonno) Kota kolkatar player ache otate?kokhono Ponting ar Saurav ekshathe khelte pare.Shahrukh er kono buddhi nei.
Girl 2: Bokish na,Shahrukh ja kore bhebe shunei kore.tui bujhbi na.Dakh tui Saurav er namey jai bol,Shahrukh er namey kichu bolbi na.
Girl 1: Shahrukh boka holeo bhishon cute.

Sadly,i reached my bus stop and had to leave inspite of dying to hear what the girls talked about once they were done with their round of tittering!
and i got down with a faint smile on my face and call it co incidence or whatever,some faraway auto radio was heard blaring out...
Korbo Lorbo Jitbo Re....


P.S:for non bengalis,i am sorry.i really cant translate all that-too much would be lost in translation :)

ahh remind me to tellyou about a group of mashimas discussing the ipl on a similar bus journey. i don't remember much but there was this bit about "oder ekta hashi, aar aamader ekta hashi. oder hashi'ta chole gechhe... taai oder aar hashi nei. kintu aamader hashi ekhono achhe, shey kolkata'r hashi'ke ujjol kore rekhechhe." (translate appropriate "hashi"s to "hussey" to get the meaning of the statement.)

and such other amusingnesses =D

*All Smiles*
Here's another pair of expert cricket(?) analysts....
IPL isn't serious cricket so this shouldn't hurt any KKR fan... In fact, they should thank you for giving them a chance to smile about something, especially after the Zogonno performance...LOL

P.S. muchos gracias para los comments en mi blog.. habla Espanol?
