Pretend Married ...

A Gujarati man and a Bengali woman who have never met before find themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a train. After the initial embarrassment and uneasiness, they both go to sleep. The Gujarati man in the upper berth, and the Bengali woman in the lower berth.

In the middle of the night the Gujarati man leans over, wakes the Bengali woman and says, "I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly reach over and get me another blanket." The Bengali woman leans out and, with a glint in her eye says, "I have better idea. Just for tonight let’s pretend that we are married."

The Gujarati man happily says, "OK! AWESOME!"

Then the Bengali woman says "GOOD..... Get your own blanket, sleep besides me and turn your head other way."
