Celebrating Rakhi

Rakhi (Raksha Bandhan) was celebrated on August, 5th this year. As we had no time on this very day, we chose to celebrate on the next sunday.

Indian Business Lesson 1

Rajpat (father): I want you to marry a girl of my choice.
Son: “I will choose my own bride!!!”
Rajpat: “But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter..”
Son: “Well, in that case… ok”

Next Rajpat approaches Bill Gates.
Rajpat: “I have a husband for your daughter….”
Bill Gates: “But my daughter is too young to marry!!!!!”
Rajpat: “But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.”
Bill Gates: “Ah, in that case… ok”

Finally Rajpat goes to see the president of the World Bank.”
Rajpat: “I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.”
President: “But I already have more vice- presidents than I need!”
Rajpat: “But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law.”
President: “Ah, in that case… ok”

And that my friends is how Indians do business.
