Ye dosti....


Gobindram was bragging to his boss one day, "You know that
I know everyone there is to know in this world! Why don't you simply
believe me? OK...Just name someone, I mean anyone and I shall show
you, that I know them!"
Tired of Gobindram's constant bragging, his boss called his bluff,
"OK, Gobindram. How about Tom Cruise?"
"Sure - yes. Tom and I are old friends. I can prove it "
So Gobindram and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom
Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise shouts, "Gobindram! Great
to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"
Although impressed, Gobindram's boss is still sceptical. After they
leave Cruise's house, he tells Gobindram that he thinks, knowing
Cruise was just lucky.
" No ...... No ...... No! Just name anyone else", Gobindram says.
"President Bush" his boss quickly retorts.
" Ah - Yes, Georgie? "Gobindram says, "Of course, I know him. Let us
fly out to Washington". And off they go.
At the White House, Bush spots Gobindram on the tour and motions him
and his boss over, saying, "Gobindram! What a surprise!!! I was just
on my way to a meeting. But you and your friend come on in and let's
have a cup of coffee first and catch up".
Well, the boss is shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.
After they leave the White House grounds, he expresses his doubts to
Gobindram who again implores him to name anyone else.
"The Pope" his boss replies.
" Sure! Why not? " says Gobindram.
Gobindram and his boss fly off to The Vatican. They are assembled with
the masses in Vatican Square when Gobindram says, " This will never
work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you
what, I know all the guards, so let me just go upstairs and I'll come
out on the balcony with the Pope!"
So he disappears into the crowd, headed toward the Vatican. Sure
enough, half an hour later Gobindram emerges with the Pope on the
balcony. But by the time Gobindram returns, he finds that his boss has
had a minor heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Working his way to his boss' side, Gobindram asks him, "What happened?"
His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope
came out on the balcony. At that moment, the man next to me said, "Who
is that on the balcony, with Gobindram?"
