    Follow us on Social Media

    A city boy, Raju, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old
    Farmer for Rs 100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next

    The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry son, but I have some
    bad news, the donkey died last night.”

    Raju replied: “Well then, just give me my money back.”

    The farmer said: “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”

    Raju said: “OK then, just unload the donkey..”

    The farmer asked: “What ya gonna do with him?”

    Raju: “I’m going to raffle him off.” (Note: To raffle is to sell a
    thing by lottery – draw lot – to a group of people each paying the
    same amount for a ticket)

    Farmer: “You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”

    Raju: “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”

    A month later the farmer met up with Raju and asked, “What happened
    with that dead donkey?” Raju: “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets
    at two rupees a piece and made a profit of Rs. 998.00.”

    Farmer: “Didn’t anyone complain?”

    Raju: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his two rupees.”

    Raju grew up and eventually became the Chairman of Satyam.
