A Sardar once visits Delhi. He is walking on a street which has a Clock Tower when someone asks him if he wants to buy the clock on the Tower. The Sardar replies 'Yes'. 'Give me a thousand rupees and I'll go get a ladder.' The man took the thousand and disappeared. Having waited for several hours the Sardar figured he was taken.
The next day the Sardar is again walking along the same street and the same man asks him to buy the clock. 'Give me a thousand rupees and I'll go get a ladder.'
The Sardarji gives him the thousand and says 'I am not a fool. This time, you wait and I'll go get a ladder.'
