This is my hotel taxi and driver broken down on the side of the road in Mumbai, July 8. I got to use a random Hindi word in context. It was impressive.

"Stepnee" is the way you pronounce the Hindi word for spare tire. I know this because I had a fellow intern named Stephanie...and all of our coworkers really got a kick out of her name, which, to the Indian ear, sounds like "spare tire."
