The Gujju Families in America
Posted by @ B H i on July 23, 2006
A Patel family in Gujarat was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother arrived from the US . It was sent by one of the daughters. The dead body was very tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left! in it when they opened the lid; they found a letter on top addressed to her brothers and sisters:
Chandrakantbhai, Arvindbhai, Mohan and Varsha, I am sending Ba’s body to you, since it was her wish that she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home in GUJARAT. Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leave is consumed. You will find inside the coffin, under Ba’s body, 12 cans of Olive Gardens cheese, 10 packets of American Tobler chocolates and 8 packets of Trader Joe’s Badams. Please divide these among all of you.
On Ba’s feet you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes (size 10 and a half ) for Mohan. There are also 2 pairs of Skechers shoes for Radha’s and Lakshmi’s sons. Hope the sizes are correct.
Ba is wearing 6 Macy’s Designer T-Shirts. The large size is for Mohan. Just distribute the rest among yourselves. The 2 new NAUTICA Jeans that Ba’s is wearing are! for the boys. The Kenneth Cole watch that Reema wanted is on Ba’s left wrist.
Shanta massi, Ba is wearing the artesia’s Gold necklace, earrings and ring that you asked for.
Please take them off her.
The 6 white Tommy Hilfiger cotton socks that Ba is wearing must be divided among my nephews.
Please distribute all these fairly.
PS: And if anything more required let me know soon as Bapuji is also not feeling too well nowadays…
