Best overheard conversation EVER

Two Indian IT-types were walking ahead of me on the way to work this morning. They were having a quite back and forth. One guy seemed to be pouring his heart out, while the other guy seemed to be "Well, there's got to be brighter side to this. Let's think."

Of course, I'm guessing. I have no idea what was said, and I have no idea what the Hindi script below says. I cut and pasted it from Wikipedia.

But the conversation went a little somethin' like this. (Hit it, DJ):

Troubled looking guy: विकिपीडिया पर आपका स्वागत है । विकिपीडिया

Happy-go-lucky hale-fellow-well-met: सभी विषयों पर प्रामाणिक और उपयोग?

Troubled guy (Jabbing the air with his finger): परिवर्तन व पुनर्वितरण के लिये स्वतंत्र विश्वकोष बनाने का एक बहुभाषीय प्रकल्प है । यद्यपि विकिपीडिया DATABASE MANAGEMENT का प्रारम्भ जनवरी CUPERTINO में हुआ था लेकिन हिन्दी DATBASE MANAGEMENTविकिपीडिया का शुभारम्भ जुलाई AJAX में हुआ और अभी हम हिन्दी विकिपीडिया में १,३४१ लेखों पर कार्य कर रहे हैं । सहायता पृष्ठ पर जाइये और प्रयोगस्थल में प्रयोग करके देखिये की आप स्वयं किसी भी लेख को कैसे परिवर्तित् कर सकतें!!!!!

The two then walk in silence, the comforter looking thoughtful.

Happy-go-lucky, in Ingles:

How's the parking?

It always comes down to parking, doesn't it?
