The Sikh regiment was climbing a hill in the Kargil sector during the
war when suddenly from the direction of the summit the Pakistani
regiment opened fire on them. The Sikh regiment took cover behind
boulders and started to return the firing. The firing continued for a
long time and no progress was made so the Sikh regiment's captain
thought that since the names of almost all the pakistani soldiers are
like yusuf iqbal mustafa etc. he'll call out their names and the
moment they react to the call we'll shoot them.
So he started calling out-"Yusuf" four hands shot up and they were
gunned down. Then the captain called out-"iqbal" three hands shot up
and they were gunned down this continued for a few more minutes till
the Pakistani's got wise and stopped responding.
The Pakistani captain then thought that at this rate all his men would
be killed so he adopted the strategy of the Sikh captain and thought
that all Sikhs have names rhyming with Inder like Sukhwinder,
Devender, Jaswinder etc.
So the Pakistani captain started calling out "Sukhwinder" no hands
shot up from the Indian side. The Pakistani captain again called
out-"Sukhwinder" still no hands shot up.
The Pakistani captain called out the same name twice again when
instantly came the reply that-
"Oye Sukhwinder nu kaun yaad kar-riya si?"(who is remembering Sukhwinder?).
The Pakistani commander immediately shot up his hand and
said-"Main"(me) and BANG he was shot dead.
