In order to develop friendly relationship between the two countries, Vajpayee and Musharraf decided to visit each other's country regularly.
The first visit was by Vajpayee to Pakistan. There Musharraf showed him Pakistan's modern telecommunication systems. It was so good that Vajpayee made a call to his uncle who is in hell and talked to him for 5 minutes ! The bill for the call came to only Rs 1.
When Vajpayee came back, he also wanted India's telecommunication systems to be at the best when Musharraf visited India. Suitable arrangements were made.
Musharraf came to India, visited the telecom department and talked to Zia-ul-Haq in hell for 5 minutes. But this time, the bill was Rs. 500!
Musharraf asked with a sarcastic smile - "Why are telephone calls to hell so costly in India ?"
A High level diplomat gave a smiling reply - "From Pakistan to hell, it is a local call, Sir, while from India it is long distance!".
