I went to a property expo in Dubai along with Mr Subu.
“Indians are flush with money. There is no recession. Better buy a house now or regret forever,” campaigned a marketing guy.
He continued in a rapid tone as if selling tomatoes: “Don’t keep thinking too much. Just buy,”
I got him closer: “It is really great to hear that all Indians have become rich. Why is it that I and Mr Subu are not in that list though we are also Indians? We think twice even to buy potatoes.”
The guy looked astonished for a moment, checked around and murmured: “Boss. Do not say just two of you. I am also in your list. That makes us three. It’s just that I am doing my job.”
Before I could finish laughing, he went on: “Buy that plot near Shirdi. It will fetch you millions of rupees in just a few years.”
