A Shikarpuri Old Woman

It was a pretty sunny day here in Karachi yesterday, I was at the Urdu bazar along with my friend Agha Mubashir. After buying some books we were looking for some chai (Tea) and then we just found a little Dhaba (Hotel) there. We ordered two cups of chai, and started some tittle-tattle suddenly this old woman, who was sitting next to us forwarded her hand towards me where a jug of water was placed on the table. I was so tired, that’s why I said immediately said Maaf karo Amma (pardon me/please leave). Then this beautiful scenario came into existence.
