PB: (One more) Er.. do you know where all the Dubai buses come and stop? There.
VV: Aa va va
PB: (standing up) This is all too much nakal . Tell me the address of the place you stayed in Dubai.
VV: I’m telling you to tell me
PB: (Here it is) #6, Vivekananda Street, Dubai Cross Road, Dubai Main Road, Dubai!
VV: Hey! Hey! Turn it and tell me (actually Vadivelu says repeat it, but it can be interpreted in Tamil as reverse and say)
PB: Dubai, Dubai Main Road, Dubai Cross Road, Vivekananda Street, #6
VV: Why did you tell me the whole thing in reverse?
PB: You told me to say it and I did (escape)
VV: Oho! That ‘reverse’? A-ha. This guy seems to be a smart guy.
VV: Ay ay. Stop man. What did you say – Vivekananda street? When did Vivekananda come there?
PB: Vivekananda finished studies and suffered because he couldn’t find a job. So he came to Dubai and saw work (worked) for 5 years. So they kept his name.
VV: Vivekananda saw work there? Which company did he see work in? Wait man! Let him lie, which company did you see work for?
PB: Mannar and Company?
PR: Get lost you Guava! Am I marriage-prize Thangavel to do fraud like that? Right. Which company did you see work for?
VV: I worked for K..k..k..Kekraan Mekaran company
PR: Oh! Kekraan Mekraan company. (aside) If you look at his face, it looks like a western toilet, would he have done a collector’s job there?
VV: Who are you talking to over there?
PB: You were cleaning toilets over there right?
VV: ba ba ba what man? You are talking bad things in front of a small kid
PB: Don’t come near me. Bad smell is hitting me.
PB: Oh that’s why you are hitting scent?
CC: Yes big brother
PB: What? Yes? Get lost you guava!
CC: (pushing Parthiban to a wall covered in cow shit) Lord! Rasa! Lord! My sweet! My gold! How did you know that I was looking at a job in a toilet cleaning company?
PB: So really you saw work in a toilet cleaning company?
VV: Oh so you asked punch-pointedly? (You were guessing?) I myself babbled?
PB: This called Putting and Getting
VV: What does that mean?
PB: Give and take policy
VV: What yelavu policy? I have told these town-people and my wife a different version
VV: I have told them Building Contractor. Don’t spoil that respect and make me stink in the street
PB: Ay-chi! Take your hand away. Did you clean camels there? It’s smelling so much?
PB: Move back. I’m telling you to move back
VV: How can I move back more than this?
PB: Right. What is this Jingi-chan, jingi-chan, blue color lungi? Seeing this, two cows have died and four men have lost their eyesight.
VV: Really? When did this …
PB: First answer what I asked
VV: Ya ya ya, this is Dubai dress
PB: Dubai dress has to be put in Dubai, why are you wearing it in Tamil Nadu?
VV: A yo yo yo from now on I will not wear it. I will not wear it
PB: So you’ll remove it and be seen with your loin cloth, in a town where there are ladies? Slipper will tear!
VV: Aiyeye! I didn’t say anything like that!
PB: Then what are you going to do?
VV: I said I’ll wear another dress. Dhothi-shirt.
PB: You’ll wear a Dhothi-shirt and ask me where I worked in Dubai, right?
VV: Aiyeye! I will never ask it! I will never speak of it! You see.
PB: From now on, doing this style, getting one guy to spray stink-medicine on you
VV: Awwwuuuuu (classic Vadivel ‘I’m-screwed’ sound)
PB: If you do all this, I’ll construct a toilet and make you clean it, careful!
VV: Aiyayo Aiyayo. No need. Don’t keep me in that job.
PB: Will you ask where is Dubai?
VV: I won’t ask. I won’t ask.
PB: Where is Dubai?
VV: Dubai coming near Erode, near Tutukudi
PB: That’s how you should say it. Go.
VV: Then, do you have some change-job (small job) in your house? Tell me, I’ll look after it
PB: The toilet needs cleaning
Did I mention Parthiban lives next door?
