Management skills

Once Sonia Gandhi, L.K. Advani and Laloo Prasad Yadav were traveling in an
autorickshaw. They met with an accident and all three of them died.

Yama Raja was waiting for this moment at the doorstep of death.  He asks
Mrs GANDHI and Advani to go to HEAVEN.  But, for Laloo, Yama had already
decided that he should be sent to HELL.  Laloo is not at all happy with this
decision.  He asks Yama as to why this discrimination is being made.  All
the three of them had served the public. Similarly, all took bribes,  all
misused public positions, etc. Then why the differential treatment?

  He felt that there should be a formal test or an objective evaluation
before a decision is made; and should not be just based on opinion or
pre-conceived notions.  Yama agrees to this and asks all the three of them
to appear for an English test.
Mrs GANDHI is asked to spell "  INDIA " and she does it correctly.
Advani is asked to spell "ENGLAND " and he too passes. 
It is Laloo's turn and he is asked to spell
" CZECHOSLOVAKIA ".  Laloo protests that he doesn't know
English.  He says this is not fair and that he wasgiven a tough question
and thus  forced to fail withfalse intent.

Yama then agrees to
conduct a written testin Hindi (to give another chance assuming that Laloo
should at least feel that Hindi would provide an equal  platform for all
Mrs GANDHI is asked to write "KUTTABOLA BHOW BHOW". She writes it
easily and  passes.
Advani is asked to write "BILLYBOLIMYAUN MYAUN". He
too passes. 
Laloo is asked to write "BANDAR BOLA GURRRRRR....." Tough
one. He fails again.

Laloo is extremelyunhappy.  Having been a student of history (which the>
other two weren't),he now  requested for all the 3 to be subjected to a
test in history Yama says OK but this would be the last chance and
that he would not take any more tests.
Mrs GANDHI is asked:
"When did India get Independence ?". She replied   "1947" and passed.

Advani is asked "How many people died during the independence
struggle?".  He gets nervous. Yama asked him to choose from 3 options:
100,000 or 200,000 or 300,000.  Advani catches it and says200,000
and passes. 
It's Laloo's turn now............................  Yama
asks him to give the Name and Address of each of the 200,000 who died in the struggle. 
Laloo accepts defeat and agrees to go to HELL.
