First Bribe

It was a cool day. We went down to a city called Gujarkahn along the Grand Trunk road. The latter is similar to the M1 in the UK. We went to a government office to get some work done. The officials there are civil servants. They will take bribes to expedite your work for you. The funny thing is that they make there bribes sound like an official fee and even explain how they arrive at the figure. We ate out at a little cafe along the road. The official kept us hanging around until the end of the day after his colleagues had gone home. It was explained to us later that this is to keep away unwanted attention because there have been complaints in the past.
