Mr. Patel, who had been called to testify at the Income Tax Department , asked his accountant Mr. Shah for advice on what to wear on the occasion.  "Wear your shabbiest clothing.  Let him think you are a pauper", the accountant replied.  Then he asked his Lawer, Mr. Bhatt, the same question, but got the opposite advice. " Don't let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie."
Confused, Mr. Patel went to his pundit, Mr. Joshi and told him of the contradictory advice and requested some resolution on the dilemma.
"Let me tell you a story". Replied the Pundit Joshi.  "A girl about to be married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night and she waid 'wear a heavy Punjabi suit with a nice long Dupatta.' But when she asked her best friend, she got an opposite advice, 'Wear your most revealing negligee with a plunging neckline.'
Confused and irritated Mr. Patel asked, "What does all this have to do with my problem with the Income Tax Department ?"
"Simple", replied Pundit Joshi, "It doesn't matter what you wear, your are anyways going to get screwed !"
