What would happen if Santa Claus was Indian?
It's that time of the year when we all hang socks, make a bucket list and tell everyone about it, hoping that Santa Claus would listen to it and make our Christmas a merry one. Although the ritual is a foreign one, yet we have adopted it with open arms and even people of other faiths now enjoy Christmas as much as a Christians do.

LIKE EVERYDAY, Twitter on Tuesday came up with an interesting topic of discussion, #Ifsantawereindian and people couldn't resist taking up the thread and post their one-liners, teasers and satires.

The most common tweet that was retweeted by many was that if Santa was Indian “Ho Ho ho would be replaced by teriiii bahen di.” Interestingly, most of the population thought of Santa as a Punjabi guy and some even added that he would definitely have a BFF by the name Banta. If this is yet to get a chuckle from you then this is sure to get tickle your funny bone- #Ifsantawereindian Salman Khan would be held for shooting his reindeer.

Some others in a subtle way also brought the quota issue, which has been the cause of much debate these days. One of the tweeples tweeted on the same lines, and said that if Santa was indeed brown then he would reserve and distribute gifts by quota system for the SC, ST and OBC. On the same lines, another one tweeted, “Those who already have gifts, will get more. Those who have nothing, will get nothing.”

We would also have to leave samosas for Santa instead of cookies and milk and he would have to use the drain pipes in our houses as we don't have chimneys. Come to think of it, he would also not require to wear boots and coats as it would not be snowing and a simple shawl on his kurta and pyjama would do. While one cannot but give in one's own input in the matter, another interesting tweet on the same hashtag was that if he was Indian, Santa would outsource his toy making business to China!

While the above part was interesting and refreshing in its own way but we would be really grateful if Santa Claus could drill some sense in people such as Adam Lanza (the killer of Newtown mass murder) and the people who raped the medical student in Delhi. While we would all forget both these as incidents and have a good Christmas, the survivors of both the happenings will have to live with it for the rest of their lives as a painful memory and would probably never enjoy Christmas as much as they did before the fateful days.
