Sometime after independence three great leaders of the country -
Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Jawaharlal
Nehru went to heaven.

God asked Lal Bahadur Shastri how many children he had during his time
on earth. He replied saying he had three! Happy with the relatively
good family planning adopted, God gave Shastri a Mercedes!

Subhash Chandra Bose is asked the same question. When he replies he
had 10 children, God is a bit upset and gives him a cheaper car, the

Jawaharlal is next and on replying that he had 15 children, God is
pretty angry and gives him an inexpensive Maruti.

Sometime later the three see Mahatma Gandhi returning on foot. They
ask why God hadnt given him anything. Gandhiji replied with anger,
“Some idiot told God that I was the father of the nation!”
