.Arundathi : My son in Delhi has written to me asking me
to go over there next Monday.
Bhagyam : What for?

at Kolkatta. Do I need to go?
Bhagyam : Yes, I think you ought to go. His family needs
some elderly person to be with them.

train ticket for me to Delhi.
Bhagyam : It’s better if he books today itself.
Arundathi : Yes, that’s a good idea.

warrant for deposing before the magistrate about a bus
Transport Inspector : Sir, did you see the warrant from the
magistrate court?
Manager : Yes, but I didn’t see the details.
Transport Inspector : You know, Sir. One of our buses plying
to Trichy was involved in an accident a
fortnight ago.
Manager : Oh! I see. Are we required to be present
in the court?
Transport Inspector : I think we are under an obligation to
depose before the magistrate.
Manager : Who will do it, you or me, Sir?
Transport Inspector : One of us can represent our company. I
myself will attend because I know all
the details of the case very well.
Manager : OK. Thank you.
