Brain of an indian.....!!!

Not open for further replies.
This is not a story but a true incident that happened in USA.*
An Indian man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for
the loan officer.
He told the loan officer that he was going to India on business for two
weeks and needed to borrow $5,000.
The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security
for the loan. The Indian man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked
on the street in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything
checked out.
The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan.
The bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the
Indian for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.
An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground
garage and parked it there.
Two weeks later, the Indian returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest,
which came to $15.41.

The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business,
and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little
puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a
multi millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow
The Indian replied: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two
weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return'"
Ah, the brain of the Indian... This is why India is shining!!!!!
Good piece Anandi.

Now hear this. I am just quoting a part of Acharya Atre's speech ( I assume that
you might have heard about Atre ).

A man came to a doctor and complained of severe head-ache. The doctor examined
him and told him that a major surgery needs to be done to remove a blood-clot.
Upon the patient's concurrence, the doctor performed the operation. The patient
was discharged and sent home. After the patient left the doctor noticed that the
brain was not put back in the head. So he preserved it . ( Don't ask me how )

After a few years , the patient came again to the doctor with a similar complaint.
The doctor was scared at first but slowly put it across to him that he forgot to
put back the brain earlier.

The patient told him non-chalantly ; Dont worry. I did not need it all these years.
Doctor: why sir ?
Patient : I was a Minister for 5 years and there is no need to have a brain to be
a Minister. Glad that you have preserved it. Please put it back now. I need it now
because I am no longer in the cabinet.

Acharya Atre was a critic, journalist, politician and he owned a marathi newspaper.
And on bank loan, security et al, here is another story heard about four decades
ago in marathi.

A poor man had no means. He was in poverty. He was willing to work hard and
work sincerely to earn money for his livelihood. Pitying him, one of his friends
took him to a bank and requested him to extend a loan of X amount . He promised
the manager that the borrower is honest, hard-working and is capable of repaying
the loan.

With the loan amount, the poor man bought two buffalos, and the Bank Manager
asked him to hypothecate them to the Bank. He worked hard and earned good
profits. He could pay interest and the instalments of loan. He wanted to buy two
more and the manager agreed to lend him on the condition that the new ones
be hypothecated to the bank. As years rolled by, the man became rich and he
was keeping all the money in hard currency in his house. He repaid the loan.

One day the Bank manager called him and asked him what is he doing with the
money. The man replied- nothing, just keeping the currency notes in the house.
The banker suggested that he will earn interest if he keeps the money in the bank.

The man asked him - how many buffalos you have as security ? !!!!

[FONT=&quot]Dear Karthik and with due respects to Ranganathan Sir,
Karthik, See this is the benefit we get if we have a senior member among us to guide. He has noted the chage in my name. I kept quiet because I know it was happened in a hurry. It is ok. And, I tell you Ranganathan Sir's knowledge on old Hindi and Tamil Songs are tremendous. Please follow his songs thread. I hope you are doing. This is just my humble request.
Take care
