Around 1993-94. TV had a dinner meeting with a customer in Chennai. His plan was to pack the customer off quickly, and start jamming with Koomar and I. We reached the restaurant, the customer didn’t leave, and so we started jamming together. After a few rounds, the customer was decidedly uncomfortable, and struggling to make small talk…

 

He asked Koomar, “Are you married?”.
Pat came the reply, “Ya, Gandhi Square”.

 

The customer disappeared.

 

Of course, what Koomar heard was “Are you from Maradu?”.

All these are very nice jokes in Malayalam.
