In my on going Driver Katha, another chapter was added last week, a very brief chapter so to speak.

Driver recommended, came to meet in the evening and said would report the next day morning at 8; however he did not have a phone. Reported for work at 7 am and was asked to wait, since I had meetings later part of the day and would leave later.

10 am came up to enquire if he could go and have tea – impressive, because none of the earlier drivers had done so.

12.45 pm came up and asked if he could go for lunch, upn being told in the affirmative, asked for Advance, which was of course refused, given that he was barely 4 hours in the job and I have a strict policy of no advance.

He turns around and says “Advance ka aisa problem hoga, toh idhar mereko nahi jamega and walked off”

The shortest driver in my history…
