Travel Diaries- Confirmation Bias.
I returned to my hometown during holidays. On a work I travelled to Tirupati. To reach my destination, "PS4 Restaurant" I asked a auto guy.
"Do sou rupiya" he told.
I haven't spoken a word in Hindi. Neither I spoke in Telugu. Why did he confirm me as Hindi guy. I thought.
"Hundred." I told him in English.
"Woh restaurant 9 km door hai." He explained me again in Hindi.
"200 anta. Veldhama vadha," I asked my sister. He was surprised to see me speaking Telugu. I was surprised to see him being surprised by shattering his notion that I am non- telugu guy.
"Why did you speak to me in Hindi," I asked.
Neeru adagadamlo tadabaduthunte bayata vaalu anukuna. You're stuttering a bit before asking me, so I assumed you're an outsider.
Bayatonne kaani Hindi e matlade bayatonni kaadhu. Outsider I'm but not someone who speaks Hindi, I explained.
We reached restaurant and this hotel guy speaks to me in English. Don't I look like a Telugu person in least percentage???
