... "What is the Purpose of Your Visit?"...

"what is the purpose of your visit?" asked the serious looking immigration officer.

"to help the united states of America!" he answered...

if you've seen the movie English Vinglish then you would've chuckled at the follow-up of that dialogue as well...

film makers, on several occasions, have portrayed this scenario in a humorous and sometimes sarcastic manner... the scene smacks of arrogance from the questioning side and fear of rejection from the answering side...

there's a pool of 'right' words (or so i've been told!) and there's pool of 'flagged responses'... so (for example) you cannot say "coming here for work or looking for job" if you're on a specific Visa / work category...

now that made me thinking... what if we ALL have to answer the same question but in a slightly different manner and in slightly different context?

imagine, ALL of us, standing in front of that one supreme power, at one stage of our lifecycle and being asked "Have you fulfilled the purpose of your visit?"

what would your answer be?
