A KHADDAR-clad Central Minister visited the Maruti car factory. The manager went out of the way to show him around & at the end of the tour, offered the Minister a free car. 'Oh, no,' said the Minister, 'I cannot accept it.' 'In that case I'll sell it to you for Rupees five hundred.' The Minister handed the Manager two five-hundred rupee notes: 'In that case, I'll have two.'
Still in service
Ram Lal died while still in service. The department head was good enough to give his widow employment, the gratuity due to her late husband & clear his insurance claims. She was able to buy & equip a new flat with a colour TV, fridge & furniture. Her son asked how she had been able to manage all this luxury. 'All due to the kindness of your father,' she replied.
'If he had not died we would not have had any of this.'
