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.
