A dash of humor

24 04 2009

This is my all-time favorite..

It’s  from the Malgudi creator’s famous Swami and Friends, the story of Swaminathan, a ten-year-old boy. 

His innocence and mischief is sometimes beyond my belief and leaves a strange tickling feeling inside me.

So, here is the exchange that I’m so fond of:

During a Geography class –

Teacher: Which is Lisbon famous for?

Swaminathan: For being the capital of Spain.

Teacher: What do you know about the Indian climate?

Swaminathan: It is hot in summer and cold in winter.
