To the man-in-the-street, who, I'm sorry to say, is a keen observer of life. The word Intellectual suggests straight away. A man who's untrue to his wife.

à l'homme de la rue, qui, je suis désolé de le dire, est un grand observateur de la vie. le mot intellectuel suggère tout de suite. un homme qui est faux envers sa femme.

आदमी को सड़क पर, जो मुझे कहने के लिए खेद है, जीवन का एक बड़ा पर्यवेक्षक है। बौद्धिक शब्द सीधे-सीधे बताता है। एक आदमी जो अपनी पत्नी के लिए असत्य है।

اس گلی میں ، جو ، مجھے افسوس کے ساتھ کہنا پڑتا ہے ، زندگی کا گہری مشاہدہ کرنے والا ہے۔ دانشور لفظ فورا. ہی تجویز کرتا ہے۔ ایک شخص جو اپنی بیوی سے بے اعتقاد ہے۔
