I’m from UK

“I’m from UK”, he said extending his hands to me. I shook his hands with bewilderment.

He spoke confidently and the tone implied he was born and raised in UK. But his accent betrayed him. The accent had heavy traces of Delhi and Haryana.

He and his friends burst out with laughter seeing the expression on my face.

Then, he clarified. “I’m from UttaraKhand… UK”.
