Made in India
by Anika S.
A Japanese tourist hailed a taxi in downtown Delhi and asked to be taken to the international air port.
On the way, a car zoomed by and the tourist responded, “Ohhh! TOYOTA!! Made in Japan!! Very fast!”
Not too long afterward, another car flew by the taxi. “Ohh! NISSAN!! Made in Japan!! Very fast!”
Yet another car zipped by, and the tourist said, “Ohh! Mitsubishi!! Made in Japan!! Very fast!”
The taxi driver, who was 100% Indian, was starting to get a little annoyed that the Japanese-made cars were passing his Taxi, when yet another car passed the taxi as they were turning into the airport. “Ohh! Honda!! Made in Japan!! Very fast!”
The taxi driver stopped the car, pointed to the meter, and said, “That’ll be Rupees 500.”
“Rupees 500? It was so short a ride! Why so much?”
The Taxi driver replied “Taxi meter. Made in India. Very fast.”
