This was an e-mail forward that came just a few minutes back.  I just couldn’t stop smiling and I am sure it would land a lot many in splits.

The large amounts mentioned in the scams have improved upon our  vocabulary, that refers to large numbers like “googol” (10^100) – such as:

Rs. 1,00,000 crores.= Rs. 1 Raja

Rs. 10,000 crores = Rs. 1 Radia

Rs. 1,000 crores.= Rs. 1 Kalmadi

It will be easier to converse and comprehend large numbers.

A few examples:

Mukesh Ambani’s home at Pali Hill costs 4.50 Kalmadi

ONGC’s annual output is 1.20 Raja

India’s loss in 2G scam is about 1.70 Raja

India’s total annual subsidy on Kerosene is 2.00 Radias

Poor Pramod Mahajan left behind only 1.40 Kalmadi

The Bofors kickbacks amounted to 0.064 Kalmadi

Wonder if anyone can patent it? But I guess in the larger interest of mankind, one should publicize it for free!!

Three cheers for Raja, Radia and Kalmadi!!!
