Not only literal but try to understand the meaning
Pappu was an obedient boy. One day, when he was making dinner, his father told him to eat all the green things served as they contain sufficient vitamins and minerals, which are good for health. After a few days, Pappu’s mother served him dosa and sambar on a banana leaf.
After finishing dosa and sambar, Pappu started eating the banana leaf also. When his father asked the reason, he said, “Father, don’t you remember? You had told me to eat all the green things served.”
Moral: Not only literal but try to understand the actual meaning also of any statement.
