Leave Letters

A friend of mine sent this to me. Once again, I do not know how real these are, but I found them to be very funny. This is supposed to be a collection of applications for leave (the Indian style) from various employees in some of the outsourced development centers…

Application for Leave
· Infosys, Bangalore: An employee applied for leave as follows:

“Since I have to go to my village to sell my land along with my wife, please sanction me one-week leave.”

 

This is from Oracle Bangalore: >From an employee who was performing the “mundan” ceremony of his 10 year old son:

“as I want to shave my son’s head, please leave me for two days..”
· Another gem from CDAC. Leave-letter from an employee who was performing his daughter’s wedding:

“as I am marrying my daughter, please grant a week’s leave..”
· From H.A.L. Administration Dept:

“As my mother-in-law has expired and I am only one responsible for it, please grant me 10 days leave.”
· Another employee applied for half day leave as follows:

“Since I’ve to go to the cremation ground at 10 o-clock and I may not return, please grant me half day casual leave”
· An incident of a leave letter:

“I am suffering from fever, please declare one-day holiday.”
· A leave letter to the headmaster:

“As I am studying in this school I am suffering from headache. I request you to leave me today”
· Another leave letter written to the headmaster:

“As my headache is paining, please grant me leave for the day.”
· Covering note:

“I am enclosed herewith…”
· Another one written by a gal:

“Dear Sir: with reference to the above, please refer to my below…”
· Actual letter written for application of leave:

“My wife is suffering from sickness and as I am her only husband at home I may be granted leave”.

 

· Letter writing:-

“I am well here and hope you are also in the same well.”
