(Genre: Just Like That)
A couple of weeks ago, a FM station (I think it was 93.5 Red FM, but not sure) in Delhi invited a veterinarian to discuss about pets, and specifically dogs.
So the RJ asks "Which type of dogs should one adopt -Pedigree Dogs or stray dogs?"
The esteemed guest replies as follows:
" You must have observed westerners coming to India, drinking Bisleri and yet they get sick. On the other hand, we people can go anywhere, eat and drink anything. So the pedigree dogs are like foreigners, very fragile whereas stray dogs are like us, low maintenance "
(The question and the answer might not be same verbatim but the essence has been captured)
Although the doctor seemed to be complimenting the Indian digestive system, are we expected to take this remark as a compliment? Do we Indians hold ourselves in such low esteem (like this vetrinarian)? Or am I reading too much between the lines?
