|David Beckham gets in a taxi at Dublin airport. He notices the driver looks at him insistently in the rearview mirror.|
After 5 minutes the taxi driver asks, "Ok. At least give me a hint."
David Beckham sighs and says, "I had a brilliant career at Manchester United, married one of the Spice Girls and played for more than 100 times for England's national team. Enough?"
Driver replies, "No, you idiot! Where are we going??"
|So the Saas Bahu saga has not spared Buckingham Palace too. Just when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to become financially independent and move to US/ Canada, all hell broke loose.|
Dadi-Saas, the Queen is furious because "Khandaan Ka Chhota Chirag" has got influenced by "Chhoti Bahu" and is breaking "Rajwaadon" Ka centuries old tradition of feeding on taxpayer's money.
Chachaji, Bade Bhaiyya and Bhabhi are upset coz, "Humse Toh Salah Mashwara Kiya Hi Nahin, Khud Hi Decide Kar Liya... Ye Hi Izzat Hai Hamari Unke Dil Mein!!!"
I'm sure somewhere some Maami - Chachi must be feeling vindicated, "Maine Kaha Tha Meri Devrani Ki Behen Ki Beti Se Shaadi Karo Harry Ki... Us Amriki Ladki Ko Ghar Mein Laoge Toh Ghar Toot Jaayega. Bahu Nahin, Nagin Hai Nagin. Dekhna, Ek Din Mere Harry Ko Bhi Dhokha Degi... Tab Dauda Chale Aayega Humse Maafi Maangne."
There must be speculations regarding "Ghar Ka Bantwara... Jaamun Ka Ped Kiske Hisse Mein Aayega". And of course, "Log Kya Kahenge... Royal prince and Dutchess working to earn a livelihood... Khandaan Ka Naam Mitti Mein Mila Diya Beta Bahu Ne."
Prince William must be standing in front of Lady Diana's pic, consoling his dad and saying, "Aaj Maa Zinda Hoti To Aisa Kabhi Nahin Hone Deti."
But I think Badi Bahu, Kate Middleton must be having the last laugh, "Chhote Ghar Se Hui Toh Kya Hua... Sanskar Aur Khandaan Ki Pratishtha Toh Maine Hi Sambhali Hai..."
|A guy ordered a drink in an airport cocktail lounge and suddenly realized that sitting across from him was Bill Gates.|
Barely concealing his enthusiasm, he introduced himself, "Hello, Mr. Gates. My name is Larry. You don't know me, but I'd like to ask you for a small favor."
A wary Gates asked, "And what might that be?"
"I'm meeting with a potential client here in a few minutes and if I can sign this deal, it could change my whole life. All I ask is that you walk over and greet me like an old friend. Perhaps my client will be impressed enough to swing the deal."
Relieved, Gates said, "Sure. I can do that for you."
A few minutes later, as the man sat talking with his client, Gates finished his drink, walked over to them, and said, "Hey, Larry! I thought that was you. How've you been?"
And the guy replied, "F*¢k off, Gates! I'm in a meeting here!"
|It is said that once Russi Mody, of Tata's, was on an official trip to Bombay.Even though it was a Sunday morning, Russi had to visit Bombay House, the Corporate Head Quarters of the Tata Group.|
He was driving a Mercedes himself as it was a Sunday and there was very little traffic and also it was the chauffeur's day off. He was wearing simple shorts and a T shirt.
Knowing that he would take just a few minutes to finish his work in Bombay House and that it was a non-working day in the business district with very low traffic, he decided to take liberties to park his Mercedes in an otherwise no parking zone.
A conscientious traffic cop noticed all this, and he immediately rushed to Russi who had started sauntering towards the Bombay House entrance. In a gruff voice the Havaldar asked Russi, "Kyun Bhai, Baap Kaa Sadak Samajh Kay Rakha Hai Kya?"
Russi very nonchalantly replied, "Haan kuchh aisa hi hai. Aapko Angrezi Padhna Aata Hai Kya?"
Then he gently held the Havaldar's arm and walked him to the kerbside, and pointed to the metal sign of the road.
He asked the cop, "Kya Likha Hai?"
The cop said, "Sir Homi Mody Street."
A mischievously smiling Russi discloses, "Wo Mera Baap Tha."
