My papa happens to be a middle level management official at a government run industry in the state of Tamil Nadu. Although, he is based in Chennai , we, i.e myself and my mother, stays at our ancestral house at Ranippettai, some112Km from Chennai. Although,Papa stays at a rented accommodation in Chennai, he keeps on shuttling between Chennai and Ranipettai, at regular intervals. He has failed to come to Ranipettai for sometime now, mainly because some business promotion group has come from Denmark to promote their products(some milk products) and to produce the same in India in collaboration with the state run industry in Tamil Nadu.
Therefore, I decide to give Papa a surprise and leaves for Chennai. He has been greatly surprised to see me at his Office. After having assured that nothing to worry about at the home front at Ranipettai, i ask him when shall he be able to make it to the home.Papa tells me that the team has left for Delhi, barring Mr. Olaffson, a 56 yr. old man , who has preferred to stay back at Chennai. He intends to study the markets in India, starting with the state of Tamil Nadu. Mr. Olaffson has preferred home hospitality in view of better interaction with the people of the state. Responsibility has been given to Papa to fix out his tour programme and make necessary arrangements for his comfortable stay. Some five places have been selected, starting with Ranipettai. Papa decides, on seeing me, that Mr. Olaffson shall make it to the rented accommodation in Chennai for the night with us and shall leave with me next morning for Ranipettai.
However, next morning on the prompting of Mr. Olaffson it has been decided that Papa shall also accompany us to Ranipettai. However, he pleads with Mr. Olaffson to delay the tour by a day and all three shall leave for Ranipettai next morning, for he has some pending work to wind up by the day. Papa asks me to take care of Mr. Olaffson and leaves for his office. And the event starts here. Mr. Olaffson , is a senior man with a big personality. After Papa has left for the office at 8 A.M, i call on Mr. Olaffson to the breakfast table. At the breakfast table, we interact on many issues. He is very focused on the job on hand and perhaps therefore enquires on many things unique to the local people. After breakfast, he goes back to his room perhaps to work on some papers relating to his job.
However, having thought that it may be disrespectful not to give him company as he being our guest, i decides to go to his room and talk. He has been doing some work on the paper. On seeing me, he again starts interacting that may , perhaps, come to his help during the coming days. As the interaction rolls on, at certain point of time a comparison comes on his milk product versus mothers milk.And slowly and slowly it moves into the breasts of the Indian Women. And further down on the size of the breasts . Actually, such discussions are very uncomfortable for any woman, let alone for a nineteen year old virgin. But having thought that to stop talking on the issue may insult Mr. Olaffson, i decide to carry on discussing without letting him understand my discomfort. It results in the discussion seeping down to a further level on the sexual behavior of the Indian Women.
