Smart guy indeed, but he's also one in thousand - even if written in
plural, it makes a lot of people in Pakistan - not to say on Earth. I

ultra-hip chai-shoppe with it, if the demand still exists (Ek Sau Rupiah
Chai, anyone?)

Cheers indeed,

Reminded me of the 'One Pound Fish' guy in London. Who even made it to
