Joke of the day - Indian Math

Joke of the day - Indian Math

An Indian politician went to the US to visit his counterpart. When the senator invited him home for dinner, the minister was very impressed by the lavish mansion with sports cars lined up outside, beautiful grounds and the costly furnishings. He asked "How can you afford all this on a meagre senator's salary?"

The senator smiled knowingly and took him to the window. "Can you see the river?" he asked. "Yes," answered the minister. "Can you see the bridge over it?" "Of course", said the minister.

"10 percent", said the senator smugly.

Some time later, he had the occasion to pay a return visit to India. The Indian minister brought out the red carpet and made the senator's visit as comfortable as possible. When they reached the minister's official residence, the American was stunned by the huge palace the minister had built, glittering with precious art, hundreds of servants, and every possible accoutrement of the mega-rich.

"How can you possibly afford this, on your salary?', the senator asked.

The minister called him to the window. "See the river over there?"

"Sure", said the senator. "Can you see the bridge over it?"

The senator looked, was confused, peered closely and said "No, I don't see any bridge."

"100 percent!", said the minister!
