Four pilgrims gathered together to travel to India: a Persian, a Turk, a Greek and an Arab. The four pilgrims were resting by the banks of a river when a man,  seeing that they were pilgrims, offered them some rupees so that they could get breakfast.

When the man had departed, the Persian said: “With this money I am going to buy angur so that we all can eat”.

The Turk protested: “No, we will buy unzum.”

The Greek shouted: “We must buy stafyllia.”

The Arab said: “We’re going to buy inab”.

At that moment they all started to argue and turned to hit each other. But another,  peaceful pilgrim passed by there and and asked, calmly. “What is going on among you, good friends?”

When they explained their problem to him the man said: “Give me your money. I will go to the marketplace and will satisfy all of you.” He departed and, a little later, came back bringing a package with great amount of grapes.

When the Persian saw them he exclaimed: “My angur!”, and the Turk: “My unzum!”, and the Greek: “My stafyllia!”, and the Arab: “My inab!”
