Bhola1 was travelling in a crowded bus. He was carrying a passport size photograph of his son (for college admission).|
Accidently, the photograph fell down from his pocket. He started searching for it frantically & found it on the floor, below the ends of a woman's saree.
He asked her "Can you lift that saree? I wanna take a photograph"
The rest is history. He was beaten so badly that he had to be admitted to hospital.
He was surprised to see Banta Singh on the bed next to him, in a worse condition. Banta explained what happened to him.
He had gone to a remote village to work. He finished late and missed the last bus. He couldn't find any hotel. So he approached a nearby house and asked the owner whether he can stay there for the night.
The Owner replied "I have 2 grown up daughters. Sorry, I can't allow you to stay".
He approached the next house and asked whether he can stay there for the night.
The Owner replied, "I have 3 grown up daughters. Sorry, I can't allow you to stay".
He went to the next house and asked: "Do you have grown up daughters?"
The Owner asked,"WHY?????????"
Banta replied," I wanted to stay here for a night"
The rest is history.
