Eashwaramma's joke !

I called up Eashwaramma and spoke to her grandaughter. 'How are you Kavya ?'. 'Madam, every day you ask me how I am ... what new thing can I say ?' ... she was thrilled at her own cleverness at the reply !!

They all have cheek enough and to spare. Once something was cooking on Eashwaramma's stove, and as i passed by she called out the customary, 'Come, sit and eat'. I checked out her vessel, and told her accusingly, 'you knew it was fish and that i would not eat'. She grinned, 'Eat and see. Lets see what will happen to you !'.

Spirits never flag in the village ...
