One day I met a friend of mine. He was a salesman for a Cola company,
posted in the Middle East.

Seeing him back home, I got surprised and asked, " Weren ' t you supposed to be in Arabia? "

He gave his account thus.
" I got posted in the Middle East. I was very confident that I will make a good sales pitch as Cola is virtually unknown there. But I had a problem as I didn't know to speak Arabic. So I planned to convey the message through pictures. I made 3 posters:

First - A man crawling through the hot desert sand totally exhausted and panting.

Second - The man is drinking our Cola.

Third - Our man is now totally refreshed. "

"That's a very good ad ", said I, "what can be a problem with it? "

He replied,"I didn't realize that Arabs read from right to left."

thts nice guru......... its correct. i remember my days back in dubai, whn i too dealt with an arabic costumer who didnt knew english, and i didnt knew arabic then. she kept on asking me for way to the washroom, and i kept on showing her our new collections.. ( thts wht i thought she was looking for). she got irritated and thankfully one of my lady staff who knew arabic came to my rescue and saved me. or else God knows what would have happened to me as the customer even called the police thinking that i was playing wid her....
HA HA HA............
i still remember the day. and i do feel that learning the local language is very imp, specially if u go to another country.

Haan Guru.............. Galiyan dene ke liye ye tareeka achchha hai.... maine kafi use kiya jabtak wahan raha.... par kabhi kabhi prblm bhi hui iski wajah se.... most of my staff frm Nigeria and African Countries know Hindi. so at times i got screwed up whn i uttered smthng bad for them in Hindi.
