Suresh's uncle, Pante, was booked into an SIA flight to Bombay. But as this was his first time in an aeroplane,he made a few preparations that were out of place. When the stewardess came around to take orders for the in-flight meal, the uncle declared loudly, "I have brought my own lunch. Make sure you don't charge me for food and drinks!" And the SIA stewardess mumbled out of Pante's ears "u thing i want two charge u meh ?"
So, as everybody was given their in-flight meal, the uncle began spreading out his own home-cooked meal. The man sitting next to him was an American farmer out from Wyoming on his first exotic trip to the Orient (winner of "Wheel of Fortune Show"), who was curious about the food.
"Excuse me, what is that drink?" he asked.
Pante picked up the yogurt-based lassi drink and said,"Milk of India!"
The the uncle took out several pieces of chappatis and started feasting.
"And what is that dish?" asked the curious American.
"Wheat of India!"replied the uncle proudly.
Finally, the uncle took out some desserts. He offered some to the American.
"What is it?" asked the American.
"Sweet of India!" replied the old man.
After the meal, everyone was settling down when there was a loud "Pooooooooot!" from the uncle.
"What was that?" asked the American in disgust.
The old man replied coolly, "That's Air India!"
