■ A woman was walking around a supermarket with her three-year-old daughter. At the chocolate counter the child asked for some and the mother refused. The kid threw a tantrum.
Mother: Calm down, Sonia. We just have three more aisles left now.
The child calmed down. But at the cookie counter the kid started wailing when refused cookies.
Mother: Don’t scream, Sonia. Just one more aisle left till we go home.
The child stopped crying but started again when the mother refused to buy her a colouring book later.
Mother: Sonia, I promise you can take a nice nap once we get home. Just hang in there, sweetie.
The child quietened after a while. A man who had been observing the whole incident came by and spoke to the mother.
Man: Ma’am, I couldn’t help but notice how well you managed your daughter. Sonia is very lucky to have a mother like you.
Mother: I’m Sonia. My daughter’s name is Neha.
■ A rich man throws a party. He gathers everyone around his swimming pool for an announcement.
Rich man: This pool is full of hungry crocodiles. I want to see if anyone is brave enough to jump into it. If anyone can swim across it and come out alive I will give him anything he asks for.
After a while one man jumps in and after a bloody battle with the crocs, climbs out.
Rich man: Congratulations young man! You are very brave indeed. Now what is it that you want?
Young man: The name of the man who pushed me in!
