WHAT AN IDEA SIRJI
Sales Meeting at a Footwear Manufacturing Plant in North India
Wholesaler 1 : Joota aisa ho ki upper alag na ho
G.M. Sales : But our shoes are durable, the upper is cemented to the sole with the most durable adhesive
Wholesaler 2 : Sir, Jootas now-a-days need to be very strong
Sales Executive : But of course our brand is strong, you have been selling our brand for many years. We take care of quality
GM Sales : The adhesive is rightly sourced, A one quality, the sole is tested for water proof, sole can last on rough terrain
Both wholesalers look at each other resignedly
Wholesaler 1 : Sir you dont understand, we do not need strong soles. We need you to make a new shoe line
GM Sales : Samjaho
Wholesaler 2 : Sir we can have a new shoe line, the shoe should be built to be aerodynamic, light, with a nice lift to it
Wholesaler 1 : Can you put in a computer chip with latest technology? Kitna cost karega?
GM Sales (Gulping down his cold drink, perplexed) : What is on your mind?
Wholesaler 1 : Sahib, novel idea hai, ekdum latest. Bahut sale hoga
Gm Sales ( encouragingly) : We always want to listen to you. You are our front liners, in tune with customer demands. Company policy hai
Wholesaler 2 : Sir, shoes are no longer footwear to be walked upon. Shoes have been upgraded to become a political statement. We want a shoe that is light to throw
Wholesaler 1 : Aerodynamic
Wholesaler 2 : With computer chip like a homing missile – target nahin miss hona chahiye
Wholesaler 1 : The sole and upper should be tightly glued, if they break open target will be missed
Both together : Bahut bikri hoga Boss! Costing kitna hoga? Humara commission kitna hoga?
Wholesaler 1 : We want it fast – abhi election season hai na … Sirr Obama said “We Can Do It!”: Humara Slogan hoga “We Can Throw It”
Ek Dum Hit Idea Hai Boss!
