Sardarji k Galiyan

A Sardar travelling on an overnight train to Punjab requests the conductor before retiring
"phaji - Ludhiana savere panj vaje aavega - mainu uthe jaroor utha dena interview lai jana hai. Main Kumbkaran de neend sonda hoon, jarurat pade taan jabardasti utar dena" (I have an interview in Ludhaina in the Morning - kick me off the train there if you have to, as I'm a heavy sleeper)

Sardarji wakes up to the sounds of "chai chai" in Amritsar , looks at time - 8.30 AM. He has missed his interview and is very pissed off, finds the conductor and starts swearing at him in the choicest Punjabi galis. This carries on for about 10 minutes. Another passenger says to the Conductor :-

"ye Sardar ji aap ki maa bahen ek kar rahen hain (giving you maa behen ke galiyan) aur aap hain ke sharafat se sune ja rahe hain"

"bhai sahib " responds the conductor "main enke galiyan to sun he nahin raha hoon. Mujhe to un Sardarji ke galiyaan sun rahi hain jinko maine Ludhaine main utaar diya.
