Also think about the palees (police) pulling you over to issue a challan for not wearing the helmet." I had no kaaments(comments) to make on this, nor I didn't kaament ( comment)on his unsolicited and yet sound advice. On the way back, I stopped at a restrant( ‘restaurant)to have a peetsa (pizza) ‘n ( and) kaafee( coffee) for my brekfirst ( breakfast).
