On the fourth day, I received a call from my office and I was informed that I had to urgently report back due to an emergency outage at work. I talked to Aana in front of the family about it.
“Yar, office me katta ho gaya hai. (There’s some problem in the office)” I said.
Aana’s mother began to speak in Malayalam and I could only figure out a few words “Katta (Malayalam: Hardcore) … pani kitti (Malayalam: a bad situation) …. Chunk (Malayalam: male friend) …”
“No aunty, no pani (water in Hindi). I’m fine.” I said
Aana explained that her mom realised something was wrong. She wasn’t offering me water and said that I should leave immediately if it’s serious.
I asked her brother “Oye, teri car le jaoon? (Hey, can I borrow your car?)”
The entire family seemed enraged all of a sudden and I could see a few fingers raised towards me.
Aana jumped into the conversation “Hey, hey… Theri is not a good word. And no, he wasn’t abusing. He’s only asking for your car.”
Her mother started saying something that had a lot of “Oolaa Oolaa (Malayalam: useless) …”
I was smiling shamelessly until I found out she was telling Aana that her male friend was useless. Embarrassed, I picked my bags and left quietly.
