A CONVERSATION WITH A BUTCHER

A conversation with a Kashmiri butcher about buying various types of meat. In Kashmir, meat generally  refers to mutton.

Butcher: What would you like, sir?

Ashok: I want one kilo of meat. What is the price?

Butcher: (Do you want it) with intestines or without intestines?

Ashok: (No) Without intestines.

Butcher: It is six rupees a kilo without intestines.

Ashok: All right, give me one kilo.

Butcher: What else, sir?

Ashok: I also want one kilo of ground meat and half a kilo of liver.

Butcher: All right, I will prepare the ground meat.

Ashok: Are liver and ground meat both six rupees a kilo?

Butcher: No, sir, liver is six rupees a kilo, but the ground meat is eight rupees a kilo.

Ashok: I see, the ground meat is more expensive than liver!

Butcher: But this is good quality ground meat.

Ashok: What is the total bill?

Butcher: The total bill is seventeen rupees. How will you carry this meat?

Ashok: Wrap it up (in paper). I will take it in this pot.

Butcher: All right.

Ashok: Here is your money.

Butcher: Thank you.
