Indian way of doing business.... A Very Funny Story !

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House...

One from Bangladesh, another from India and the third from China.. They visited the White House office to examine the fence..

The Bangladesh contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well", he says, "I figure the job will run about $900. ($400 for materials, $400 for my team and $100 profit for me)"

The Chinese contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700. ($300 for materials, $300 for my team and $100 profit for me)"

The Indian contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700.."

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure..?"

The Indian contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from China to fix the fence.."

"Done!" replies the government official...
