US to help India go nuclear, India to return favor

The US has agreed to share civilian nuclear technology with India, reversing decades of American foreign policy towards the South Asian giant.

India has promised to return the favor by assuring the US that henceforth,all its call-center personnel, particularly the telemarketeering division would refrain from calling America on it's cellphone during the weekend, or when America is in the bathroom, taking a whiz.

This has been the first give and take of favors between the two superpowers since the 1960s when Indian prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru responded to President John F Kennedy's gesture of increasing aid to underdeveloped countries by issuing an edict to lower the spiciness of lamb vindaloo in the "Taj Mahal", the only Indian restaurant serving Washington DC.

Pakistan, on hearing about the alliance, has gone up to it's bedroom, slamming the door, saying it hates America and the world and is never going to speak to it again.
