Shweta : "What are you reading?"

Jaya : "Textbook, studying for exams. Listen I'll catch up with you later, I want to finish this chapter."

Shweta : "Ok. Hey, look what I got - Maggi! Come, you can help me make it now and we can eat lunch together."

Jaya : "Thanks, but I'm not hungry. Talk to you later, enjoy your maggi lunch."

Shweta : "Hmmm. Hey! Can I come to the store with you later today?"

Jaya : "Umm... sorry, but no. I'm going with another friend. Ok I HAVE to get down to studying now. Bye!"

Shweta : "Arrey even better, you can introduce me to your friend. What's she like? We'll all go have coffee after that."

Jaya, losing it : "Shweta, do you know what 'chipkoo' means, by any chance?"
