When one of my Uncles ( Taya ji ) was in England ,around 1948, ( as nearly all the bicycle manufacturing machinery was imported ) he went one evening with friends / relatives to a Restaurant in London.
After the meal my Uncle gave a tip of 1 Pound to the English Waiter. The Waiter , in return , gave a Majestic Salute to my uncle.
My Uncle , again , took out another Note and gave tip and the White Waiter , again Saluted.
My uncle went on giving the notes and receiving salutes till all the money in his wallet was exhausted.
His co diners were , naturally , very surprised and asked him the reason.
Uncle replied :-
" YEH ANGREJ JO KAL TAK HUM PAR RAAJ KARTEY THEY AAJ HAMAREY EK NOTE DENEY PAR HAMEY SALAAM MARTEY HAIN. ISS SEY JAYADA JINDAGI MEIN HAMAREY LIYE AUR KYA KHUSHI HOGI .
