A "funny' thing happened one day while we were sitting on our balcony overlooking the backwaters. A houseboat was returning with a party of Indian men. They were laughing and singing and clapping and it appeared that they had had a festive time.
Next to the driver a young fellow was perched on the edge with his back to us. The next thing he toppled over backwards into the water. As you can imagine, panic struck. We even wanted to jump in and save the fellow.

There was much cheering and laughing that followed and we raised our glasses to the successful operation.....and for me the mystery was solved. YES the men do wear underwear, unlike most "true scotsmen".
