Why are only Indians reborn?
The angel Gabriel came to the Lord and said ‘I have to talk to you urgently. We have some Indians up here in heaven and they are causing problems. They’re swinging on the pearly gates, my horn is missing, they are wearing Dolce and Gabana instead of their white robes, they are riding Mercedes’ and BMWs instead of the chariots, and they’re selling their halos to people for discounted prices. They refuse to keep the stairway to Heaven clear, since they keep crouching down midway eating samosas and drinking chai. Some of them are even walking around with just one wing!’
The Lord said, ‘Indians are Indians. Heaven is home to all my children. If you want to know about real problems, give Satan a call.’
Satan answered the phone, ‘Hello? Damn, hold on a minute.’
Satan returned to the phone, ‘OK I’m back. What can I do for you?’
Gabriel replied, ‘I just wanted to know what kind of problems you’re having down there.’
Satan says, ‘Hold on again. I need to check on something.
After about 5 minutes Satan returns to the phone and said, ‘I’m back. Now, what was the question?’
Gabriel said, ‘What kind of problems are you having down there?’
Satan says, ‘Man, I don’t believe this! Hold on.’ This time Satan was gone at least 15 minutes.
He returned and said, “I’m sorry Gabriel, I can’t talk right now… These Indians are trying to install air conditioning and making hell a comfortable place to live in by putting out the fire. Moreover they are so tech savvy, they were trying to start a telephone connection between heaven and hell… I am having such a hard time controlling and dealing with them!! Some were trying to start a chai – pakora shop, which I had to stop…
As a clincher, Satan then said, “I am recommending to the Lord to send them back onto earth as soon as they arrive, as Karmic re-birth cases”.
