It was Fall 2002 and I was lost somewhere in my thoughts, physically I was present in my Urdu language class but mentally where was I? Hmm…. never mind. But all of a sudden I thought I heard something extra ordinarily weird coming out of my Urdu teachers oral cavity (i.e. mouth) , that halted my system.
The word was “ ASS “, my reply was “ what the…! Come again”,
Teacher: “ …C’mon haven’t you heard this thing before Barkhurdaar (son in English)!!
Me: “ Yeah!! But..Why? I mean what?!”, i like all of us found myself in the state of immense disbelief.
Teacher: ”Students; haven’t you heard something about Seeta, the Hindu Good-Ass?” Me: “ Seeta?!”
Teacher: ‘Yes, the Hindu Good-Ass!’
One of the girls in my class exclaimed: “ You are not by any chance talking about Seeta the Hindu Goddess or are you?!”
His reply was; “Ah, Yes of course…..i am talking about her.” I with the rest of the class immediately figured out what he really intended to say but some how our very own Urdu language teacher found him self lost in translation.
I like always say: Life is a sitcom!!
