While visiting India , George Bush was invited to tea with Abdul Kalam.
 He asks Kalam what his leadership philosophy is. He says
 that, it is to surround himself with intelligent people.
 Bush asks how he knows if they're intelligent.
 "I do so by asking them the right questions," says the Kalam.
 "Allow me to demonstrate."
 Bush watches as Kalam phones Manmohan Singh and says, "Mr. Prime
 Minister, please answer this question: your mother has a child, and your
 father
 has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"
 Manmohan immediately responds, "It's me, Sir !"
 "Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says Kalam. He hangs up and
 says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?" Bush nods: "Yes Mr.
 
 President. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!" Bush, upon
 returning to Washington, decides he'd better put the Condoleeza Rice
 to the test. Bush summons her to the White House and says, "Condoleeza, I
 wonder if you can answer a question for me."
 "Why, of course, sir. What's on your mind?"
 Bush poses the question: "Uhh, your mother has a child, and your father
 has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is
 it?" Rice was puzzled and finally asks, "Can I think about it and get
back
 to you?" Bush agrees, and Rice leaves. Rice immediately calls a meeting
of
 senior senators, and they puzzle over the question for several hours,
 but nobody can come up with an answer. Finally, in desperation, Rice
calls
 Colin Powell and explains the problem. "Mr. Powell, your mother has a
 child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or
 your sister. Who is it?"
 Powell answers immediately, "It's me, of course."
 
 Much relieved Rice rushes back to the White House, finds George Bush,
 and exclaims, "I know the answer, sir! I know who it is! It's our Colin
 Powell!"
 
 And Bush replies in disgust, "Wrong, it's Manmohan Singh!"
