He found a saleslady, and told her, ‘I would like a Bengali bra for my wife, size 34 B.’
With a quizzical look the saleslady asked, ‘What kind of bra ?’
He repeated ‘A Bengali bra.
She said to tell you that she wanted a Bengali bra, and that you would know what she means.’
‘Ah, now I remember,’ said the saleslady.
‘We don’t get as many requests for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra, or the Jain bra, or the Parsi bra.’
Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked, ‘So, what are the differences? ‘
The saleslady responded.
‘It is all really quite simple.
The Catholic bra supports the masses.
The Jain bra lifts up the fallen & downtrodden.
The Parsi bra keeps one staunch & upright.’
He mused on that information for a minute, & asked, ‘So, what does the Bengali bra do ?’
‘The Bengali bra,’ she replied, ‘Makes Mountains Out of Mole Hills.’
