Lallu Ram Meena of Rambas village in Dausa was in for a huge surprise a few days ago when he received an admission ticket for an examination for the post of junior engineer that carried a photo of Barack Obama.

Ironically, Lalu Ram has neither the qualification to sit for the exam, and nor had he applied for the post.

Lalu Ram said he was really perplexed because he had never applied for the post. “I am an Arts graduate. Only those who have completed Engineering are eligible to apply for the post. I don’t know how this goof-up took place,” he said.

“I don’t know from where they got my name and address,” said the surprised
