With WhatsApp under pressure because of their recent message about accepting their new terms of privacy, many jokes are doing the rounds, mostly and appropriately perhaps, in WhatsApp and here is one that came my way from three different sources.
My response to one which was copy pasted for the others was “Absolutely. My father from the old school, used to add my degrees after my name: BA MBA. The postman asked my wife once what that surname meant!
My nephew overheard this and started calling me Bamba Mama.”
And that response from me reminded me of another post that I had written in this blog.
So, the postcard makes another appearance in my life. Here is the another one that was preceded by another to which there is a link in the post itself.
Note: In Indian languages relatives have specific names unlike the umbrella uncle and aunt in English. Mama is specific for the brother of one’s mother. In this instance, my nephew is my sister’s son.
