GAP goes Amma style

Overheard in GAP. Two south Indians checking out the new summer wear.

If you are in a habit of reading my blog aloud (not recommended, but still if you do...), kindly read the following in a strong south Indian accent.

Southie 1: Look at these shirts da, what color and material.

Southie 2: Reminds me of my fathers lungi (pronounced: loong-ee).

Southie 1: Yes da, a lungi which is not ironed.

I love summers!!

And those of you wondering what a lungi is,
check this out.

Looks more like a skirt or a wrap-around to me.

Nicole: True, only this one comes off pretty easily.

Rumpel: Who Gujju boy? U need to read my blog more religiously. I was a Gujju my last birth. Right now I am the "Aamchi Mumbai" kinda guy.

Yes Dan, Lungi ke peechay kya hai - thats in the next Subhash Ghai movie!

Scene 1 - Take 1
Apoo's dressed in a lungi and is being chased by his own pet dog

and action ...

10:17 AM
Apoo completes the scene in his (and the dog's) first take ... (quite remarkable considering the fact that this is his first stint on TV) ...

10:20 AM
Apoo cannot be located on set ...

10:50 AM
Still no trace ... and cell fone out of range

11:45 AM
Producer calls 911

12:30 PM
Search Officials find tattered lungi and broken fone a mile from the shoot

anyone wants to continue?

Abhi, I have a question. What if appoo could speak in "dog" language, would he argue with the dogs like he is used to arguing with the D'Souzas & Shah's of the world or would he still run?

Also if the dog chooses to actually stop & converse with appoo is the dog better than the D'Souza's & the Shah's?
