A moment or two after a highway accident, an old Marwadi man came up to a woman lying by the roadside.
"Have the police come yet?" the man asked.
"No," the woman moaned.
"Has the ambulance been here yet?"
"No," the injured woman repeated.
"How about the insurance company?"
"Listen," the Marwadi said, bending down. "Do you mind if I lay down next to you?"

Kill When They Are Small...
A Marwari, who had spent his whole life in the desert, comes to visit a friend.
He'd never seen a train or the tracks they run on.
While standing in the middle of the rail tracks one day, he hears this whistle -- Whooee da Whoee! -- but doesn't know what it is.
Predictably, he's hit and is thrown to the side of the tracks.
It was only a glancing blow, so he was fortunate to receive some minor internal injuries, a few broken bones, and some bruises.
After weeks in the hospital recovering, he's at his friend's house attending a party one evening.
While in the kitchen, he suddenly hears the teakettle whistling.
He grabs a iron rod from the nearby shelf and proceeds to batter and bash the teakettle into an unrecognizable lump of metal. His friend, hearing the ruckus, rushes into the kitchen, sees what's happened and asks the desert man,
"Why did you ruin my good tea kettle?"
The desert man replies, "You have to kill these things when they're small."
