An American and a sardar are seated next to each other on a flight from
Los Angeles to New York. The sardar asks if he would like to play a fun
game.
The American, tired, just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines
and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The sardar persists
and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He says, "I ask you
a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me five dollars,
and vice versa. "Again, he declines and tries to get some sleep. The
sardar, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay
me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500." This
catches the American's attention and, figuring there will be no end to
this torment, agrees to the game. The sardar asks the first question:
"What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The American doesn't
say a word, reaches into his wallet, pulls out a $5.00 bill, and hands
it to the Sardar.
"Okay," says the sardar, "your turn. "He asks, "What goes up a hill
with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The sardar, puzzled,
takes out his laptop computer and searches all his preferences........no
answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the
Internet and the Library of Congress... no answer. Frustrated, he sends
e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail. After an our,
he wakes the American and hands him $500. The American thanks him and
turns back to get some more sleep. The Sardar, who is more than a little
miffed, stirs the American and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without
a word, the American reaches into his purse, hands the sardar $5, and
goes back to sleep.

I thought it was wallet, now it's a purse?? Is this some kind of magic wallet that just turns into a full sized purse when it wants? Was there magic beans in the purse too?
just joking,
Jamie

I will get the 500 dollars.
Sardar is a chieftain or headman, presently used as a title for all Sikh men (Guru Nanak's followers). They wear turbans.

I assume we're talking about a south american from somewhere in the outskirts of Rio? Possibly even the mid-region of Argentina

A sardar, a madrasi and a gujarati were waiting for a bus when a dangerous-looking guy approached them. He suddenly pulled out a syringe with blood inside it and said in a menacing tone, "Give me all your valuables or I'll pierce you with this needle. This contains AIDS infected blood!"
Our friends were naturally alarmed - all except the sardar. The Madrasi immediately gave away all his valuables. The Gujju bargained with the
stranger and gave away half of his belongings. The sardar, however, was unfazed. He refused to part with his money. In anger and frustration, the guy pricked the sardar with the needle and ran away. The alarmed madrasi and gujju asked the sardar, "How could you do this? Now you will get AIDS surely!".
The sardar coolly replied, "No! I won't! I am wearing a condom".

Shura

If you want a literal meaning, it is right. I am sure that the indian was calling the other 'guruji' in a friendly/jovial manner. That depends on the context.

If you want to hear 'JI'/'Saab'frequently,Parliament/State Assemblies are the best places .JI also is used when you want to get work done from a person.'JI' also means 'Yes Sir/Madam'. Famous 'Yes Minister' programme can be safely translated as 'JI MANTRIJI'
