|Subedar Santa and Subedar Imamuddin were in the same regiment in the British Indian Army, they were inseparable friends and spent their evenings drinking together.|
The partition separated them as Subedar Imamuddin was absorbed in the Pakistan Army. To keep his friend`s memory alive Subedar Santa always filled two glasses with rum and water and sipped from each alternately! When somebody asked him why he did so, he explained:
"This glass is Imamuddin`s; this one is mine. So I take a sip from each- One on behalf of Imamuddin, the other for myself."
Suddenly one evening Santa was seen with only one glass on his table. He was asked what happened.
He replied, "You see, I have given up drinking but Imamuddin has not. So I have put away my glass and drink only on behalf of my friend."
