Return on Investment

I had to follow up on the last mail due to pressure from my batchmates. I tried my best to resist, but then this one was too funny and crazy to keep the readers deprived. The video below is such that it does not require any narration or explanations. The readers of this blog have already been introduced to one of my best friends, Chuchu(Rahul), in the last post. This is again related to the bday party he would never forget.

Everyone dreams of getting great gifts on his/her bday. The joy of unwrapping a present cannot be expressed in words. Chuchu had been the only one among us who had always got gifts nicely wrapped for every bday party. Not only that, this guy was a gem who would gift every girl present in the party with a gladiola flower. We, the worthless souls, had not gifted a single soul anything till date. I dont know whether emotions got the better of us this time around. Maybe the fact that we were leaving college in a month or so made us do this. Chuchu was the lucky fella. While wrapping every present that we handpicked for Chuchu, we never knew that he would run a bill over 7400 bucks!! We never knew that in the aftermath of the calamity, when Chuchu would be gathering his belongings in the ruins, he would notice how we had not even contributed close to a fourth of his mammoth party bill through our present!

But we knew one thing, this one present would be judged not on its cost but for the love and effort we had put in picking each of the items which will be unwrapped in this video. It will be judged on the smiles this video will still manage to gather a year down the line.
