Goli No 22…. P.K in potty

April 21, 2010

…..year 1999 i was running a…….financial services business ………. specializing in corporate finance …….. we needed a telephone land line (Pre mobile boom) ……… and because of some technical issues in documentation ….. we were not getting MTNL lines……..bandyaa our office man did some jugaad with line man and got us a new land line connection ……… we still had not printed this new line No on our business cards ……….. no outsider knew about this no …….. and the phone rang …………

Pillai picked up the line…….. on the other end some body asked ……… can i speak to P.K ……….. pillai was not sure what to say……….he muttered P.K sundaaz mein hein………..we were stunned …… and then a roaring laughter …….. entire office was laughing ……….. in five minutes the phone rang again asking for P.K …….. this time pillai said decently …… he is in the bath room ………. the caller most probably said five minutes back also …….. pillai replied haan haan bahar aahaya tha phir se aandar gaya hai……..pet thik nahin hain …………

every time the phone rang it used to be P.K hai………my colleagues used to run to the phone and scream ……….. P.K sundaaz mein……..julaab ho raha hai…….. sometimes in english ……. he is suffering from dysentery

………..based on who picked up the phone if it was bandyaaa…….. it used to be crude hindi or marathi descriptions…….if it was pillai or banerjeee…… it used to be more refined in english………….one day pillai came with a new line…… he is got severe shoulder pain phone utha nahin sakta ……….. he further explained …… sabhere sein se doso bar andhar gaya hai………. balthi utha utha kar ……khanda dukh raha hai………. balm laga kar letha hai …………

every body used to laugh with these new lines…….one day dhanda pani came with this finance line when the phone rang………….. P.K bank gaya hai …………… deposit karne ko ………….. cash flow accha hai…….. baar baar jaa raha hai ……… P.K calls kept the office amused in a bad finance market ……… some of our managers removed their market frustrations ………… on P.K calls to the fullest………….

the callers used to be ………. dealers ……. vendors ……… bankers …………. media ……….. P.K seemed to be some important person in some big company…….. this number was his direct line ………..we never bothered to find out who he was………our conversations was restricted to his sundaaz………

……..and one day the phone rang…………..i picked it up and as usual muttered ……… P.K is in the loo………..the person at the other end …………said ba…*#@….. iam P.K………….the dysentery man of Mumbai ………. iam no more P.K ……. you people have given me a new name…………. sundaaz wala ……..potty man ………….. told the whole world ……… that iam a leaking pot ……. he said every body from his employees…….dealers……..vendors…….have been asking him about his stomach and motion problems ……… he briefly introduced himself…..

……… we had tarnished his image ………… and he is going to sue us……… unless ……… i banged the phone called bandyaa………disconnected the jugaad line……… felt ashamed for having allowed this in our office …….. the whole office was silent now with guilt and fear……. till one day banerjee showed all of us a business magazine………with P.K on its cover………..C.E.O of…………
