A Country At Crossroads – Dedicated To Politicians Of This Region


Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Kwan Yew, said:

There were two options for me: Either I get corrupted and I put my family in the Forbes list of the richest people in the world and leave my people with nothing.


I serve my country, my people and let my country be in the list of the best ten economies in the world.

I chose the second option.

Indian politicians (most) said: “There were two options for us too, but the second option was already taken by the Singapore Prime Minister…”

OMG, What Has The World Come To Be:-(

It’s truly Kalyug, the nadir of human existence.


It was pasted on the safe in bold 36: ‘If you’ve managed to come this far, just press the button and save yourself breaking it open…it’s expensive to repair or replace.’

Very practical. He was happy to do as told.

The doors closed, bells sounded and the police arrived.

Police: ‘Do you have anything to say in your defense?’

Crestfallen, he lamented: ‘OMG, after this, my trust in humanity is completely razed to the ground, blown to smithereens, trampled underfoot…’

The Brave Patient

‘Thrifty’ is a very small part of the story. Sindhi’s are an amiable, peaceful, fun loving, entrepreneurial, venturesome, hard-working and charitable community, not to forget the number of educational institutions they built. It’s quite possible Nasa may already have a line-up of Sindhi’s wanting to open shops on the moon or even Mars!!

Relocating from Sindh in Pakistan during partition, they’ve done very well for themselves starting from scratch and enriched our society with their all-round contribution.

For long, their thrift has been a ready fodder for humor, mostly mean. But they’re a good sport (just as Madrasi’s, Malayalee’s, Gujju’s, Panju’s, Bongs…bear theirs). Here’s one in that vein:


Dentist maxresdefault

A Sindhi went to a dentist for tooth extraction but first enquired about the cost. Dentist said Rs 1200, the Sindhi thought that was too much.

After some thought, he asked about cheaper methods. The dentist said, “Yes, it can be done without anesthesia and will cost only Rs 300, but it would be very very painful.”

Sindhi said, “OK Doc, let’s do it without anesthesia.”

The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia. During the entire procedure, the Sindhi sat quietly, even smiling a little.

The dentist was not only surprised but was quite impressed and said, “I have never seen such a brave patient. I don’t even want my fees, here take Rs 500 as a reward instead, you’ve taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one’s pain!!!”

In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about this amazing Sindhi patient.

One doctor jumped up and shouted, “That ×%#@ Sindhi first came to me, I gave him anesthesia and asked him to wait outside for half an hour! After half an hour when I called for him, he had left!!”

What Are Husbands Like?

A must-read before you say ‘I do’:

selectkitchens.com.au man_cooking

This guy was watching TV as his wife was out cutting the grass during the hot summer. He finally worked up the energy to go out and ask his wife what was for supper.

Well, his missus was quite irritated about him sitting in the air-conditioned house all day while she did all the work: “I can’t believe you’re asking me about supper right now! Imagine I’m out of town, go inside and figure dinner out yourself.”

So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, with potatoes, garlic bread and tall glass of iced tea.

The wife finally walked in about the time he was finishing up and asked him, “You fixed something to eat? So where is mine?”

“Huh? I thought you were out of town.”

Too Clever By Half (डेढ होशियारी)!

The passenger train was ready to leave Indore for Bhilwara. It was 10-00 on a Friday night.

When Hoshiyar Singh Aadhi entered the compartment (railway coach) he found it so crowded there was no place to stand even.

Rail Quora

He was known in his circles for his ‘innovative’ approach in difficult situations.

‘Snake, snake, a black snake there, man, pull your feet away else…it’s right near that suitcase now…,’ Aadhi raised an alarm, swirling and pointing now here now there.

In no time passengers fled in panic like from a house on fire, carrying their bags and baggage.

Aadhi quickly climbed up to a vacant berth at the top, spread his sheet and made himself comfortable with feet stretched out. It had been a long day at work for him. Weary to the bones, he fell asleep immediately.

It was early morning when Aadhi woke up to the call of ‘chai, chai’. He looked around, smiled to himself finding he still had the whole compartment to himself.

The train had halted at some station. Getting down quickly, he called the chaiwala (tea vendor) rushing past him outside on the platform.

‘Are Bhai, kahan thak pahunch gaye hum?, Kaunsi station hai yeh’ (Where have we reached, hey brother? Which station is this?’)

‘Dekh lo, saheb, Indore hai, Indore.’ (‘Look for yourself, sir, it’s Indore.’)



‘Haan, saheb, ab utar jao. Yeh dibba kahin nahin jayega,. Isko yahin kaat diya gaya. Kal raat ko isme jo saap gusgayi thee na.’ (Yes, sir, get down now. This compartment is going nowhere. It has been disconnected right here. Yesterday a snake had got in, you know.’
