Actor, Producer, Director, columnist and humorist I.S. Johar was best known for his wit and slick sense of humour. His column in Filmfare (Answer to Questions by readers now done by Shatrughan Sinha) was very popular. The thespian's 28th death anniversary falls on 10/03/2012 (tomorrow).
As a tribute,a few snippets from his columns from 1975-80:

A Its better than being carried away.
Q Why do husbands feel awkward to walk with their pregnant wives?

A. “Zindagi” and “Maut”.
Q. After a lot of trouble we are able to get a few hundred grams of sugar on our ration card. Should we keep it in our bank locker?
A. Only after a proper evaluation.
Q. Your divorces create a bigger fuss than the Dharm- Hema and Vinod- Bindiya marriages.
A. Because I am least fussy about marriages. (In fact, he married five times but was lonely during his last years)

I've got good and bad
This old man visits his doctor and after a thorough examination, the doctor tells him, "I have good news and bad news, what would you like to hear first?"
Patient: Well, give me the bad news first.
Doctor: You have cancer, I estimate that you have about two years left.
Patient: That's terrible! In two years, my life will be over! What kind of good news could you probably tell me, after this?
Doctor: You also have Alzheimer's. In about three months you are going to forget everything I told you.
