Hamara Rocket

 NASA was getting ready to launch a very important
   space shuttle. The scientists and engineers checked and
   double checked everything to make sure that things are fine.
           However, on the day of our launch, something seemed
   to be wrong. The rocket gave all sorts of noise but never
   took off even an inch from the ground. The engineers were
   puzzled because they could not figure out the problem.
           Finally, there was an Indian scientist who offered
   to help. They NASA people were desperate by that time and 
   agreed to do anything.
           "Tilt the rocket 45 degrees to the right" said the
   Indian scientist. The engineers were puzzled but did it anyway.
           "Bring it back to vertical position" the Indian said.
   The engineers did. 
           "Now start the engines" he said. And surprise, the
   rocket took off and flew into outer space!
           Everybody congratulated him and asked him how he knew
   what to do. He replied -
           "It is very simple. This is what we always do with our
   Bajaj scooters in India".
