Extract

Padhman had found the whole conversation bizarre. A Tamil speaking Irishman? But the banter was comforting. There was something to be said about the reassuringess of hearing people curse in your mother tongue. Reassuringness? Yeah, thought Padhman. Wrong English maybe, but it does the job. The pizza arrived and the three young doctors ate in companionable silence.
