I was out with Pappettan for the Christmas party. Within no time, Pappettan started heating up the dance floor with a lot of woman wanting to dance with him. A lot of staring across the dance floor at what kind of magic he was weaving was getting me anywhere. So I decided to navigate the dance floor to his side in order to have a closer look and also to eavesdrop on the conversation. When I reached his side of events, the music stopped. A bit of efforts from my side, I was able to follow the conversation.
Woman: *in a cheerful tone* ...And you told me you don't know to dance?
Me: *with a smirk and whispering to myself* Isn't that a known fact?
Pappettan: *as a matter of fact* I don't know to dance the western way.
Me: *trying hard to suppress the laughter*
Woman: *inquisitive* Really?
Pappettan: I have been practicing dance for 8 years.
Me: *shocked at this revelation*
Woman: *surprised* 8 years is a long time. So you have learnt one of the traditional dance forms of India?
Pappettan: Actually, no. It is one of the new forms of dance. It is called Bollywood contemporary.
Me: *head reeling*
At this point of time, the woman moved away and I couldn't contain it anymore. So I grabbed Pappettan.
Me: *agitated* Why are you fooling her with your lies?
Pappettan: *in an accusing tone* Your habit of snooping is going to get you into trouble one of these days!
Me: *more agitated with his response now* That is not an answer. Bollywood contemporary! 8 years!
Pappettan: *with a smile* Yes, I have practiced Bollywood contemporary for many years. So have you... Every one of us.
Pappettan: *victorious smile on his lips* Dappan Kuthu. Don't we know it? Isn't that we do in all parties?
