So what we did was, that the security guard who were there were armed with the batons, and all that, and we took the batons and we went down -“
“When you say ‘we’, it’s you and the man you’re meeting, Satpal? The man you had a business meeting with?”
“Actually it’s just one person, we don’t like to say ‘I’, I always use the word ‘we’. Yeah, because when God is with you you become two, right?”
