Overhearing !

Overhearing happens quite easily without our knowledge. While traveling in Rajdhani Express from Mumbai to Delhi I happened to overhear the following conversation. Yup.
Now don’t preach about it being a bad habit but then what can you do since they were sitting right in front of you ?

Two Gujarati men discussing Indian economy. Actually only one. The other one was patiently lending him an ear.

1st person – Indian currency kachro che. FD mein bhi nahi daal sakte, only nationalized banks.
Mannu bechara accountant tha, usko gaddi pe baitha diya. Wo kya jaane politics.

Note:– Later we realized that he was referring to Dr Manmohan Singh, the Indian Prime minister who is also a world famous economist. 😀

  1. What would life be with a bit of ‘overhearing’!! Some of the ‘best’ comments and statements I’ve heard (meaning humorous or absurd)- were from ‘overhearing’ – On the other side of the coin- have you ever had someone ‘overhear’ you…and then JOIN IN your conversation????? oh my- I’ve had that happen to me on several occasions and I’m always quite shocked when a total stranger joins in my conversation between my hubby n me…or a friend n me…etc etc

  2. haha
    just for the record- manmohan singh is not a “bechara”
    he is one of the most corrupt men in india. to quote shakespeare “look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under it” – that’s our “innocent” PM.

    politics aside, the things we overhear are often funny and interesting… i had a similar experience on Azad Hind express from Pune to Nagpur. it was quite funny. I suspected the male boss and female worker relationship was not so innocent. hah

  3. lol. so very true! bechara manu ko KYON yahaa laya?

    my first time in here, and im lovin it! =)
    kp up the good work!!

  4. Obviously they did not know the difference between accountant and economist. :))) Overhearing is not something that you can avoid.
