A CONVERSATION WITH A MILKMAN

This concerns a conversation with a traditional 'milkman', about arranging home delivery of milk or yogurt. The term gu:r also means 'milkman'. The use of bottled milk is still restricted to a few areas in Srinagar and some nearby towns. A brief discussion on prices etc. is also included.

Ashok: How much is a kilo of milk?

Milkman: Two rupees, sir.

Ashok: Milk or yogurt?

Milkman: Yes, milk and yogurt both sell for two rupees a kilo.


Ashok: What price is the cheese?

Milkman: Five rupees a kilo.

Ashok: Do you have home delivery of milk?

Milkman: Yes, every morning. Where do you live?

Ashok: In the white house, right here near the bend.

Milkman: We'll deliver it for you. How much do you want?

Ashok: One kilo of milk and one kilo of yogurt.

Milkman: Very well, sir.

Ashok: Do you want a deposit?

Milkman: No, we shall keep a monthly account and send you the bill each month.

Ashok: Fine, thank you.
