A joke


The Lord surveyed the Ram Sethu and said “Hanuman, how diligently and strenuously you and your boys had built this bridge several centuries back. It is remarkable that it has withstood the ravages of the climactic and geographical changes over centuries. It is indeed an amazing feat especially considering the fact that a bridge at Hyderabad built by Gammon using latest technology collapsed the other day even before they could stick the posters on its pillars.” Hanuman with all humility spoke “Jai Sri Ram, it is all because of your grace. We just scribbled your name on the bricks and threw them in the sea and they held. No steel from TISCO or cement from Ambuja or ACC was ever used. But Lord, why rake up the old issue now.”

Ram spoke, “Well, Hanuman some people down there want to demolish the bridge and construct a canal. The contract involves a lot of money. They will make money on demolition and make more money on construction.”

Hanuman humbly bowed down and said “Why not we go down and present our case?” Ram said “Times have changed since we were down there eons ago. History they say is only what is written in paper that can be carbon dated and counter-signed by a notary public from a western country of that time. Poetry is not good history anymore. They will ask us to submit age proof. We neither have a birth certificate nor school TC certificate. Since we travelled mainly on foot and some times I travelled on your shoulders and also in carts, we don’t have a driving license either. As far as the address proof is concerned the fact that I was born at Ayodhya is itself under litigation for over half a century. If I go in a traditional attire with bow and arrow, the ordinary folks may recognise me but Arjun Singh may take me to be some tribal and, at the most, offer a seat at IIT under the reserved category. Also, a God cannot walk in dressed in a three-piece suit and announce his arrival. It would make even the devotees suspicious. So it is a dilemma, to say the least.”

Hanuman said “I can vouch for you”
