gujrati joke sent to me by my 25 year old freind from germany, now in india, practicing vedanta

Dear Swamiji,

You may enjoy this Gujarati joke.

With pranams,


A Patel family in Gujarat was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother arrived from the US. It was sent by one of their daughters.

The dead body was very tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left in it. When they opened the lid, they found a letter on top addressed to her brothers and sisters. It said,

Dear Chandrakantbhai, Arvindbhai, Mohan and Varsha,

I am sending Ba's body to you, since it was her last wish that she

should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home in Gujarat.

Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leave is consumed.

You will find inside the coffin, under Ba's body, 12 cans of cheese, 10 packets of Toblerone chocolates and 8 packets of Badam (Almonds). Please

Divide these among all of you.

On Ba's feet you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes (size 10) for

Mohan. There are also 2 pairs of shoes for Radha's and Lakshmi's sons.

Hope the sizes are correct.

Ba is wearing 6 American T-shirts. The large size is for Mohan. Just distribute the rest among yourselves.

The 2 new Jeans that Ba's is wearing are for the boys. The Swiss watch

that Reema wanted is on Ba's left wrist.

Shanta Masi, Ba is wearing the necklace, earrings and ring that you

asked for. Please take them off her.

The 6 white cotton socks that Ba is wearing must be divided among my

nephews. Please distribute all these fairly.

PS: If you need anything else please let me know soon. Bapuji is

also not feeling too well nowadays.
