Perhaps one of the most satisfying moments for me as an off-road enthusiast, came courtesy of my 6 year old nephew, Mikaal...the son of my younger brother, Shahab. He calls his father "Baba" and calls me (his taaya) "Abbu Ji".
Over the years, Shahab has driven a Mazda RX8, a Honda Civic, and a Honda City...and he's also, VERY particular when it comes to his rides. This mukaalma took place between Shahab and Mikaal, a while back, when I, Shahab, Shayaan (my son) and Mikaal were sitting together:-
Shahab: Mikaal, tumhaari kaun si favourite gaari hai?
Mikaal: Woh jo Abbu Ji waali Land Cruiser hai.
Shahab: Achha...mera matlab tha apni gaariyon mein se?
Mikaal: Baba...bataya naa...woh jo Abbu Ji waali Land Cruiser hai.
Shahab: Nahin, Mikaal...RX8 aur Civic aur City mein se?
Mikaal: Baba...aap ne kiya fazool gaariyaan rakhi hui hain? Mein Abbu Ji ka beta naa ban jaaoon, aur Shayaan Bhai aap ke betey ban jaein, thorey saalon ke liye?
Shahab: Ulloo da patha na howey, tey...
