So I called Babu this morning, as per usual the conversation went a bit like this..
Me: “hi, how are you?
Babu: “fine, fine, you?”
Me: “and……?” ok what did I miss
Babu: “what else…?”
. . . (silence my end, oh no, I havn’t forgotten his birthday? I swear it’s at the other end of the year)
Babu: “oh I am not even going to talk to you if you don’t know what day it is”
(oh no, I’m sure it’s not his birthday though??!!)
Babu: “Independence day!!!”
Me: “oh happy independence day!” “I didn’t know that”
So, there I was all pleased with myself about remembering to prepare myself to ask about Raksha Bandan (trying my best to remember what it was called) when that is yesterday’s news, I can’t keep up!
So anyway, Happy Independence day all!
