Scenario: Mr. Tripathi, a minister and a friend arrives, and he is welcomed by all the family members (mother, two sons & daughter in law). A small girl in the family goes to fetch the father, who is the girl’s grandfather from his office room in the house.

Conversation:

माँ: अरे, त्रिपाठीजी आ गये | (Are Tripathiji aa gaye)

त्रिपाठी: नमस्ते भाभी, नमस्ते! (namaste bhabhi, namaste)

माँ: नमस्ते, भाई साहब! भाई साहब, आप मंत्री क्या बन गये, हमारे तो घर का रास्ता ही भूल गये | (Namaste Bhai sahab. Bhai sahab, Aap mantri kya ban gaye, hamare to ghar ka rasta hi bhool gaye. )

त्रिपाठी: ठीक कहती है भाभी | यह मंत्री का जोड़ा पहनने के लिए घर संसार से तो त्याग लेना ही पड़ता है| देखिए न क्या ज़िंदगी है – घर से दिल्ली, दिल्ली से घर, घर से दिल्ली ….| (theek kahti hai bhabhi. Yeh mantri ka joda pehanne ke liye ghar sansar se to tyaag lena hi padta hai. Dekhiye na kya zindagi hai – ghar se dilli, dilli se ghar, ghar se dilli…)

बेटा १: पाई लागो, चाचाजी ! (Pai lago, chachaji)

त्रिपाठी: अरे अरे! जीते रहो, अनिल, जीते रहो! मुबारक हो ! (Are are! Jeete raho anil, jeete raho! Mubarak ho)

बेटा २: नमस्ते अंकल | (Namaste uncle!)

लड़की : दादाजी, दादाजी, मंत्री दादा आए है | (Dadaji, dadaji, mantri dada aaye hai)

Translation:

Mother: Mr. Tripathi is here.

Tripathi: Greetings, sister-in law , Greetings

Mother: Hello brother! Ever since you became a minister you’ve forgotten the way to our house (forgotten us).

Tripathi: You are right. To carry out the responsibilities of a minister, one is forced to neglect domestic responsibilities. See what a life! I have to travel between home and delhi.

Son 1: Greetings uncle! (touching the feet)!

Tripathi: God Bless you, Anil! Congratulations!

Son 2: Hello Uncle!

Girl: Grandpa, grandpa Minister grandpa has come.
