So how does one make potatoes at home?

This is in the lounge in domestic terminal of Kolkata airport.

I asked one of the young guys working in the lounge “Ei, etar maaney ki?” (What does this mean?)

The poor lad looked at the label, measured me up and said “Aamio ingraji bhalo bujhi na Sir”!! He pleaded his English was as weak as mine! But nonetheless, he addressed me as “Sir”.

Mightily amused, I returned to my table with a resolution that from now on, it is going to be only factory made potatoes for me !!!

Good start to this morning…
