Those were the days when whites ruled South Africa and apartheid was the law of the land. Two blacks met in a whites-only section of Johannesburg. One of them had a permit to work in the area; the other did not. Suddenly they saw a policeman coming towards them, “Run” whispered the man with the permit to his friend They started running and the policeman who was behind them shouting, “Stop, Stop “and began chasing them .the policeman caught the second man .”Show me your permit “He said. The man began fumbling in his pocket and produced his permit. The policeman felt that he had been tricked. The man without the permit was now far away to be caught. The policeman asked, “When you had a permit why did you run ?'” Doctors orders “He has asked me to run a mile every morning .”Then why was your friend running? Asked the policeman. His doctor too has suggested running .said the man. The policeman became angry “Don’t be such a smart man, Tell me if you were only running for your health why didn’t you stop when you saw me running after you ?”Of course, I knew you were chasing me -said the man .” then why didn’t you stop? asked the policeman .”It was stupid of me. But I thought you too had been ordered to run by your doctor. “
