|Banta bought a brand new Maruti and decided to drive down from amritsar, where he lived, to Jalandhar to meet his friend.|
He reached Jalandhar in a few hours. After spending a few days there, he decided to return, and called up his mother to expect him in evening. But he did not reach Amritsar that evening and not even the next day. when he finally reached home on the third day, his distraught mother ran out, hugged him and asked, "Arre puttar, ki hoya?"
Banta got out, obviously very tired from a long journey, and said,"Oye, ye Mruti waale paagal hain, agge jaane waaste chaar gear banaate hain, aur piche jaan waaste sirf ik." (These Maruti-makers are crazy: they make four gears to go forward, but only one to go backward.)
|Banta`s eldest daughter had been taken to the delivery room in a hospital and he was anxiously waiting outside, when he heard the crying of a newborn babe. A few minutes later a nurse came out of the delivery room.|
Banta rushed up to her and enquired, "Sister, am I a grandfather or a grandmother ?"
|Banta and Santa were working on a roof, when Banta slipped and fell to the ground. Santa leaned over and called out:|
"Are you dead or alive, Banta?"
"Alive," moaned Banta.
"You are a liar. I donot know whether to believe you or not," said Santa
"Then I must be dead," said Banta, "because you wouldnot dare call me a liar if I were alive."
