Tenali Raman and his wife were going to a friend’s wedding. His wife wore her best sari and jewels.
Suddenly an out-of-control bullock cart came rushing from behind. Tenali quickly pulls his wife towards himself in an effort to bring her to safety, loses balance and both of them fall into a pit along the road.
Wife (upset) : What do you think you were doing? You spoilt my beautiful dress! I can’t go to the wedding like this now!
Tenali : Well, it’s time to buy a new dress then (as he smiles to himself thanking God that she is safe)!
