Mubarak to you too !!

This happened a long long time back. We were on a trip to our native. Now, we are going from our village to the nearest town where we need to meet this auto driver whose name is "Mubarak". This guy is found in front of shop that my grandma is aware of.

So we are in an Mahindra Armada jeep and in a small town where big "passenger" are still looked at with awe. We stopped in front of that shop and called out to the person manning the shop.

Multiple voices from the car: "Mubarak?"
The man was happily bewildered and said "Oh, Aap ko bhi Mubarak. Lekin kis baat ke liye" (Oh, best wishes to you too but what for?)

We did not even try containing our laughter :-). Once we were done, we told him we are looking for Mubarak, the auto driver
