Bill Gates in India

Filed under: Just For Laughs — Celia @ 2:20 pm

A lot has been said about Corruption in India.. The latest is a joke what I heard from papa.

Bill Gates thinks that he has to get his new operating system(Long hornnn vechipoma?) into India and decides to do the marketing himself. And so after the travel and a warm welcome which included the garlanding, thilagam etc etc(idhula onnum kora vekka maataanga)… he gets on to show the demo.

The President shows him a pc which has a previous version of OS running. Bush now starts the system, inserts a CD and tries to install the new OS.

Some seconds pass…

Nothing happens. Few drops of sweat are now found in Bill’s forehead. He ejects the CD and tries to insert it again.

Some seconds pass….

Nothing happens. Bill is really bewildered now.. He calls Bob and checks out whether everything is right. It is indeed. They had checked it a thousand times in US.

Bill decides to give it a final try. Does it for the third time.

Some seconds pass…..

Nothing happens. At this point, the president gives a suggestion. “May be we should try inserting a 100 dollar bill together with the CD? We have done this a lot of times and only then this would boot.”

  4. @Harish- To be frank, ippadi nadandhalum ajaryapadrathukilai

    @nanyaar- Thanks buddy. Aaana source naanilaa papa.

    @anbae- This is the comment I was waiting for. There are some shameful practises that need to be get ridden of from the Indian Society and this is one of them.

    Well, this joke was triggered by a serious incident. My mom recently retired from her Government Services and she had to get her funds back. There are detailed procedures that have to be followed and one person suggested to my mom that the process can be quickened if she “thaniya gavanichifies” him heavily.
