An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the World. So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to China.
On his first day when inside a church in China while taking photographs ,he Noticed a Golden Telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read
"$10,000 per call".
The American, being intrigued, asked the priest who was using and for what The telephone was used for.The priest replied that, it was a direct line to heaven and for $10,000 you could talk to God directly.
The American thanked the priest and in Next stop in Japan. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the Same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in China and He asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.
She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he Could talk to God. "O.K., thank you," said the American.
He then traveled to Pakistan , Srilanka , Russia , Germany and France .. In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same "$10,000 Per call" sign under it.
The American, upon leaving Vermont decided to travel to India...our India...to see if Indians had the same phone
He arrived in India , and again, in the first church he entered, there Was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read "One
Rupee per call."

"Father, I've traveled all over World and I've seen this same golden Telephone in many churches. I've been told that, it is a direct line to Heaven,
But in the US and rest of world the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?"
