How many Uncles. . .

. . . Aunties, sisters . . .

Now, although I was familiar with the usage of the term aunty, uncle etc being for more than your parent’s siblings (thanks to “Eastenders” and various other soaps and their token desi families) I must admit it still took mue a while to catch on.  I would think that Babu was always talking about the same person, or he had a rather big extended family! So just to clarify- uncle is not the same guy as uncle, uncle and uncle (who is actually his uncle!) I’m sure I’ll catch up eventually!
