Once, a Hindu, a Sardar and an American were travelling in an aeroplane. Suddenly, something went wrong and the engines stalled. They had no parachutes with them. So all the three of them decided to risk their lives and jump out of their planes.
First, the Sardar jumped out. He removed his turban, used it as a parachute and jumped. Using the turban he slowly floated down.
Then the Hindu removed his dhoti and jumped out. Again his dhoti acted as a parachute and he also floated down gently.
Seeing this, the American removed his shirt and pant and jumped out. Unfortunately, they did not do well as a parachute and he began to fall rapidly from the plane to the ground.
He passed by the Hindu who said – ” May Bhagwan help you”.
Then he passed the Sardar. The Sardar looked at the American zooming past him and was puzzled. So he said – “I see! You want a race! Let us see who is faster” Saying so, he let go of his turban.
