Time Pass

January 2007
Time Pass

Sometime after independence, Mahatma Gandhi and three other Indian men, Subhash, Lal and Jawaharlal, go to heaven. God asks Subhash how many children he had during his time on earth. He replies that he had three. Pleased with the relatively good family planning, God gives Subhash a Mercedes! Lal is asked the same question. When he replies he had 10 children, God is a bit upset and gives him a cheaper car, a Toyota. Jawaharlal is next and on replying that he had 15 children, God is pretty angry and gives him an Ambassador. Sometime later, the three see Gandhi returning on foot. They ask why God hadn't given him anything. Gandhiji replies with anger, "Some idiot told God that I was the Father of the Nation!"
