One of those rare countries

that's below sea level.

And the weight of you tourists

is bearing it down further.

Look to your right. So they had

to build these windmills...

that pump out water

from the fields.

If I face you and say

right, it means your left.

When I turn my back to you, my

left and your left are in synch.

Any questions? I can

give you any info...

except for star Deepika

Padukone's cell number.

Like her?

Want a picture of you

and the windmill?

Before our long bus trip,

I can pee for you too.

Only for you, Sarlaben.

All good?

Seventeen! Seventeen and a half.

Eighteen and a half.

The past has faded from memory.

The present is where I live.

I travel on. Who knows

where I'm heading.

Where am I?

Faith let me believe...

that the world is good.

And those I meet on the way...

who walk with me for a while...

are good people too. I know.

Just a little cross...

that drifting traveler...

was from my village.

That old path...

whose memories I

could not escape.

My home shed tears without me.

I have a nagging fear...

that I no longer

belong to my home.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

Neither from here

nor from there.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

Neither from here

nor from there.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

That's me.

That's me.

That's me.

I befriend milestones.

The road knows me by my gait.

Every day...

the world feels

the same every day.

I sell cities to

people of leisure.

I leave empty-handed, I

return empty-handed.

Every day...

I'm becoming a

stranger to myself.

When I turned from

village to city...

turning bitter, like poison.

Every day...

I wish it could

have been different.

This age, this time, this

road keeps passing by.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

That's me.

You lot are the most

ungrateful wretches. Get lost!

Eat as many theplas, dhoklas

and fafdas as you want.

But get out of my face.

Curses on you!

- Your phone isn't working?

- Why?

I lost my ring.

I was engaged on this trip. The

ring my fianc gave me is lost.

- You'll miss your flight.

- I know.

I can't leave without my ring.

I tell you what...

Send an email to


Describe your ring and

explain where you lost it.

Send them your address.

- I know where the ring is.

- Where?

It's in the Amsterdam hotel

where you put us up.

No problem! Run!

Catch your flight.

I'll tell them you're coming.

I won't change my mind, boss.

Not going without my ring.

No point staying, ma'am.

Hello... Flight status? 9W231.

Let's go to the hotel.

Unfortunately, ma'am, I'm

headed the other way.

No worries. I'll get you a taxi.

How generous! A taxi!

You're coming with me.

No way, ma'am.

You can't order

me about anymore.

The tour is over.

Talk to me politely.

So two-faced! Tour's over so

you show your true colours.

It's just that you folk don't

consider others like humans.

Aren't I human too? How

can I travel all alone?

Where's the loving fianc?

We fought. I told him

I lost the ring.

He's gone?

The ring belonged to his family.

He got upset and said:

"It's a sign that you don't care.

Wedding cancelled." Cool!

I tore up the boarding pass and

said I'd return with the ring.

Has your family left too?

You mean half my family?

They let you stay alone?

I'm a modern woman.

"Let me?" Meaning?

I told my Dad I knew

where the ring was.

His flight hasn't taken off.

Call him, say you're with me.

But I am not.

I'm trying to explain.

I have another booking.

I must go.

I'll pay you. How much?

It's not always about money.

It's always about money.

What's your daily rate?
