By Invitation: Why only Indians are reborn

with one comment

By Diwa Pandey / Via Arati Datta

The angel Gabriel came to the Lord and said ‘I have to talk to you. 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 & Gabana saris 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 (tea). 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 five 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… fire has been kept here to keep them uncomfortably hot!! Since they are so tech savvy, they were trying to start a telephone and Internet connection between heaven and hell, between ME and GOD. I am having such a hard time controlling and dealing with them!! Some were trying to start a chai-pakora, chole batura, channa, dosa and samosa, barfi, chakli and dhokla, jalebi, idli, paan shops, which I had to stop… I am requesting you OH LORD PLEASE send them back to earth as soon as they arrive for re-birth”.
So this is the story why Indians are the only ones that are re-born!!!
