Not to be outdone by Rakesh Sharma and Ravish Malhotra, India's first astronauts, two sturdy Punjabis applied to NASA, the American space agency, to be taken to outer space. Their application was accepted and they were asked to report at the centre in California. They were told that during their period of training they must not take any alcohol. They followed the strict regimen imposed on them for several weeks, till one day they could not resist the temptation to wet their lips. Since no strong drink was available anywhere near the centre, they drank up a canister of rocket fuel.
Next morning, the following dialogue took place between them: "This is your friend speaking. Have you been to the lavatory this morning?' 'No, why do you ask such a silly question?' 'If you haven't, don't try. I am speaking from Tokyo.'
