Bill Gates organized an enormous session to recruit a new Chairman for Microsoft Europe.

5000 candidates assembled in a large room.

One candidate is Kantibhai Shah.

Bill Gates: “Thank you for coming. Those who do not know JAVA may leave.”

2000 people leave the room.

Kantibhai says to himself:, “I do not know JAVA but I have nothing to lose if I stay. I’ll give it a try.”

Bill Gates: “Candidates who never had experience of managing more than 100 people may leave.”

2000 more people left the room.

Kantibhai says to himself:, “I never managed anybody by myself but I have nothing to lose if I stay. What can happen to me?” So he stays.

Bill Gates: “Candidates who do not have management diplomas may leave.”

500 more people left the room.

Kantibhai says to himself:, “I left school at 15 but what have I got to lose?” So he stays in the room.

Lastly, Bill Gates asked the candidates who do not speak Serbo – Croat to leave.

498 more people left the room.

Kantibhai says to himself:, “I do not speak one word of Serbo – Croat but what do I have to lose?” So he stays and finds himself with one other candidate.

Everyone else has gone.

Bill Gates joined them and said:

“Apparently you are the only two candidates who speak Serbo – Croat, so I’d now like to hear you have a conversation together in that language.”

Calmly, Kantibhai turns to the other candidate and says “… Kem Chho.?”
