Be always ready to use your mind
One day, Sumit’s mother called him and asked to go to the egg shop and bring one egg. Sumit went to the egg shop and said to the shopkeeper, “Please give me one egg.” The shop owner said, “I don’t sell one egg. We sell eggs in dozens only.” “OK, then give me the twelfth part of one dozen eggs,” said Sumit clearly. The shopkeeper was impressed by the cleverness of little Sumit. He praised Sumit and gave him one egg.
Moral: Be always ready to use your mind.
