is an impossible task…. Sample this conversation:
While Diya and I were watering the plants and A looked on observantly
A: I think we should get Diya married in (Deve)Gowda family.
Me: (Stunned) what??? why????
A:(looking intently at Diya’s soiled legs, face, dress and hands busy digging out mud from the pots)
A: Well… I think you were right when you said that she is a true daughter of the soil. And look, the Gowda family also claim themselves to be the son(s) of the soil. It would make a good match. What say?
Me: (pause – trying hard to comprehend what he just said)
Me: But that makes them brother and sister, isn’t it?
