A man residing near the street where boys used
to play cricket daily, discovered a trick to make
them leave that place, so that he can live peacefully,
without any noise created by the shouting of the boys.
He called them and said,”I love cricket very much.
If you play cricket daily without fail, I will pay you
Rs.20. every week.” The boys felt happy. The man
paid them Rs. 20, as promised, on the first week.
He paid Rs.10. on the second week, saying that he
has shortage of money. He said on the third week
that he would give them only one rupee because
he was facing financial problem.The boys felt
insulted and denied to accept one rupee, saying
that they were not beggers and went away, never
to come back again.The man was very happy to
see that his purpose was accomplished.
