On a sunny April afternoon in 2007, a twenty-two year old tour guide eating chapathi led a group of tourists up a few wooden stairs.
"Although this building looks ancient, it is only a replica. In fact, it was built very recently in the year 1928," said the tour guide.
"Recent?" scoffed a young teenager. "Do you seriously consider 1928 recent?"
The tour guide frowned. "Of course! 1928 was only two years ago!"

How is this possible?



Answer

The man was going by the Indian National calendar.
The Indian National, or Hindu, Calendar is approximately 78 years apart from the Georgian Calendar, depending on the time of year.

Chapathi, also spelled "Chapati", is a traditional Indian flatbread.
