I was listening to their conversation.
“Aarush. Why don’t you call your friend, John and tell Christmas wishes?”
“No Mom. I won’t. He always says their God is the greatest among all. Even our teacher told him not to say like that and all Gods are equal.”
“Ok. Then what’s wrong in wishing him on Christmas day?”
“Yeah. I’m coming to the point. If I wish him he will feel like I’m accepting his God to be the greatest…”
“No re. We shouldn’t do like that. If you call and wish him, he will also call and wish you on our festivals.”
“Ok. If that is the case, I will do. But I don’t think he would call and wish me on all our festivals. His telephone bill would blast up…”
I just smiled and said, “Happy Christmas…”
