Talking about the Bhojpuri Rap ‘Bambai Main Ka Ba’:
Rohit: Abhinandan, I’m not being a linguist because Bhojpuri is not my first language but it’s not Bambai Main Kaaba, it is Bambai Main Ka Ba.
Abhinandan: Oh, I thought Kaaba.
Rajyasree: Kaaba, as in the Islamic structure?
Abhinandan: As Jagjit Singh said, “Kaabe se parda mat uthao varna wa bhi vahi...”
Rohit: No, no, no! “Khuda ke waaste parda na kaabe se uthaa zaalim.”
Rajyasree: Even that’s incorrect! Very good!
Rohit: Oh, my God! Brilliant! So, we are on top of the things already.
Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.
