This is the second time I am saying this in the space of two weeks. First time it was the sabji wallah and today it was at the bank. I am not complaining, I think humans like to categorise to make sense of the world and while there are offensive and oppresive extremes that categroisation can lead to, this is not one such.
I categorise people too. I seem to subconciously know whom to use English with and whom to use my shaky Hindi (aaargh why do objects have gender????) with. What is the Bengali look anyway?
