Afghan soldiers were making they're way through the desert, when they heard a shout from beyond the next hill.
"One Sikh fighter can defeat 10 Afghan soldiers."
Accepting the challenge, 10 soldiers were sent to investigate. Not long after they crossed the ridge, a burst of gun fire was exchanged, followed by silence.
"One Sikh fighter can defeat 100 Afghan soldiers." broke the silence.
100 Afghan soldiers quickly rushed the hill to silence the calls. After a few hours of fighting, the desert fell silent.
"One Sikh fighter can defeat 1,000 Afghan soldiers."
Enraged by the insult, 2,000 Afghan soldiers flanked around the hill, hoping to trap the enemy. For nearly a day, the remaining soldiers listened to the fight and screams. When it was all over, a single Afghan soldier crested the hill, bloody and stumbling he cried out. "It's a trap! There are two of them!"
