An airplane full of tourists is flying from New York to Texas when one of the engines stops working. The captain speaks to the passengers: “Ladies and gentlemen, in order to stay alive we have to throw all the luggage overboard. Then we will have less weight and we will safely reach our destination.”
So they do. But a few hours later the second engine stops working and again the captain speaks to the passengers: “Ladies and gentlemen, in order to safely reach our destination we need three persons to jump off the plane.”
An Englishman stands up. “Sorry,” he says, “I beg your pardon… but of course….” He turns around to the rest of the passengers, grabs his umbrella and jumps out of the plane shouting, “God save the Queen!”
A Frenchman gets up with tears in his eyes. “Vive la France!” he cries and jumps out.
A man from India wearing pure white khadi clothes, looking more like Morarji Desai than Morarji Desai himself, walks through the plane, grabs one old woman by the throat, throws her out of the plane and shouts, “Long live Mahatma Gandhi!”
