Doing the needful

Amazon chunk
Jul 9 17 Comments

I have recently found myself working almost purely with people from India, and they are awesome! As a non indian, to blend in, I have already adopted the side to side head nod, and have dropped several 'today morning's in conversation. To kick up my game a notch, how does blind think I can work 'do the needful' into conversation? Examples help.

    Lol, do the needful means “you know the process better than I do as it lies in your area of expertise, please do what needs to be done”

      No, do the needful means “I can’t fix it myself but I hope you can, please do so and save my butt for me”

    Many Indians are a bit insecure and feel the need to be validated by non Indians.

    Speak a few words in Hindi/the persons native language.

    Talk of how great India is! Especially compared to Western countries, and of course Pakistan!

    Feel free to make things up! You could say something like the theory of relativity was copied from Vedic math (which has nothing to do with Vedas btw) and most of us will be happy without any fact checking whatsoever!

    You’ll instantly be a celebrity among Indians!
