This is a conversation I had with my 5 year old nephew (henceforth called S) yesterday while putting him to bed
S: Mausi, you go to the office everyday
S: And you went to school earlier?
S: So you didn’t go to college?
Me: Sweetheart I went to college as well.
S: So you went to school and college and now you go to office?
S: So why didn't you get married?
Me (laughing): I am trying to find a nice guy
S (very serious tone): Office ko maro goli, ladka dhoondo

I am actually feeling a bit sorry for the girl!
