Banta Singh happened to be in a queue at a railway station ticket counter with two men ahead of him.
“Ek Punjab Mail dena,” demanded the man in front. He was given a ticket.
“Ek Punjab Mail dena,” the second man asked & was handed a ticket.
Then came the turn of Banta Singh, “Ek Punjab female dena!”
“‘What do you mean by Punjab female?” asked the clerk.
“It is for my wife,” replied Banta Singh.
