Siddarth Kumar – Inbizhero

“Once, I had gone to crack a client deal. Things were going well – the client was responsive and he liked our pitch. I had been asked to meet the client’s Purchase department to finalize the prices (I had a target price of Rs. 250 in my mind). At the meeting, I was nervous, the Purchase Manager only spoke in Hindi, and my Hindi is basic at best. After the uncomfortable customary pleasantries, I handed over our quotation to him. He tossed it aside without looking at it, looked at me and asked for the price…in Hindi. Nervous as I was, I told him ‘deerh sau’. He blinked, and repeated the question. To which I replied, ‘Deerh sau Sir, Two hundred and fifty rupees per kg’. He chuckled, and told me he’ll release the Purchase Order soon. It took me a while later to understand the difference between ‘deerh sau’ (150) and ‘dhai sau’ (250).”
