Amid all the number crunching in corporate finance and financial markets, happened to read this and liked it:

bg: Tom is an executive from France deputed to Delhi for six months to set up the MNCs Indian operations….

As darkness enveloped the neighbourhood surrounding his townhouse, Tom sat in his living room reflecting on his job. Outside, the night was filled with the sounds of barking dogs and the piercing whistles of the estate’s security patrol. “Each family here has its own security gaurd,” he explained. “But because gaurds fall asleep at their posts, our neighbourhood association hired a man who patrols the neighbourhood blowing his whistle at each gaurd post and waiting for a whistle in response.But now the whistling has gotten so bad that some families have begun paying this man not to whistle in front of their house. Incredible, isn’t it?”
