Most Famous Man
One day many years ago at a school in South London a teacher said to the class of 5-year-olds, «I’ll give £50 to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived.»
An Irish boy put his hand up and said, «It was St. Patrick.» The teacher said, «Sorry Alan, that’s not correct.»
Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, «It was St. Andrew.» The teacher replied, «I’m sorry, Hamish, that’s not right either.
Finally, a Gujarati boy raised his hand and said, «It was Jesus Christ.» The teacher said, «That’s absolutely right, Jayant, come up here and I’ll give you the £50.»
As the teacher was giving Jayant his money, she said, «You know Jayant, since you are Gujarati, I was very surprised you said Jesus Christ.» Jayant replied, «Yes, in my heart I knew it was Lord Krishna, but business is business!»
