JAN 29, 12 .. PONDICHERRY .. MY TAILOR ..

I just love this business of copy and paste ..  THANKS TO CHAD 45039 .. I have finally learned to use .. control + C and control + V to  copy and then to paste .. so I am now free of the mouse and its right click magic .. 

This copy and paste magic has allowed me to 'borrow' from my own web site .. http://babakaps.net .. For What It's Worth..  111.. January 28,  2012 ..  in which I did a 'text writing' with no photograph(s) ..

I have these nylon athletic warm-up and jogging trousers .. I use them a lot because they are easy to wash .. they dry in an instant .. and are light and cool .. and they are white so I can be seen .. and being white I wash them a lot ..
.
BUT .. they do NOT have belt loops .. and so .. they keep working their way down from my waist to my hips as I walk and I am constantly pulling them up .. I mean constantly ! .. for YEARS mind you .. but in the United States I am not walking around with so many things in my pockets .. camera .. wallet .. passport .. cell phone .. all .. with the assistance of gravity .. pulling my trousers down .. down .. and .. down ..


A week-or-so ago  .. as I passed an elderly tailor .. sewing away on his sewing machine out on the street .. I decided .. I will have him stitch belt loops onto my warm-up trousers ..

I stopped .. discussed it with him .. got a quote .. 40 Rupees for six belt loops .. two in front .. two in back .. two (one each side) on the sides .. and told him I would be back after I went home and changed from my warm-up trousers to my walking shorts ..
.
I did and he said .. "Come back at 5PM to pick them up" .. and I did and he had done just a wonderful job .. a perfect job ..


So .. stressing the cost .. I said firmly to him .. "Forty  Rupees !"  .. the elderly gentleman quietly nodded in the affirmative  .. and so I pulled out a brand spanking new crispy Fifty Ruppee Note and .. putting it into his front shirt pocket said .. "THANK YOU VERY NICE JOB !" ..

This kind  elderly gentleman just MELTED with appreciation !  .. In fact he almost 'teared up' .. 
Over a twenty-cent tip ! .. and a few nice words of appreciation !

Friday .. I went back .. gave him my walking shorts  (which also had no belt loops and also kept slipping down on  my hips) ..  when he saw me coming  .. holding my walking shorts ..  he knowingly smiled and said  .. "Belt loops !" .. I smiled in the affirmative as I handed them to him  .. he said .. "6PM" ..

I missed our 6PM appointment Friday but yesterday .. on my way here .. I stopped by and picked them up .. same routine .. a firm .."Forty Rupees !" .. he again nodded in the affirmative .. and again I gave him a nice clean new Fifty Rupee Note .. and again he just melted with his appreciation ..

In FWIW.. 111.. at .. http://babakaps.net .. I said .. "I just by gosh may take a photo of him .."

Well I have and here he is below .. pretty 'dark photo' but you can see his machine ..
Again.. still very dark .. but .. you can still see him at his machine ..
And .. taa-daa .. he would NOT .. he simply would NOT .. smile .. I did all I could do to encourage him to smile and .. he would smile .. and go back to being serious before I could snap him smiling .. he REALLY IS VERY GENTLE AND VERY KIND .. in the below photo he does not look 'that part' however .. 
Here we go ..


"Cap.. just what is it you love so very much about India ?" .. "The people !" .. 


MUCH LOVE .. Cap ..


Will you all look at what Clement in France at 73160 did for us with a dark photo ..
 Awesome.. totally awesome .. THANKS CLEMENT .. he still is NOT smiling however !  Smiles ..
