    :roflmao:That was hilarious Teenulahari.
    I simply loved this justification! Brilliant!!!

    Looking back I am kicking myself for not treating my textbooks this way.

    You see I always wanted to taste that sticky candy that the guy would roll up as a watch or butterfly and tie to your hands. Of course the parents have to ban it as "unhealthy". (Yeah, whatever we like, they called it "unhealthy")
    I would have traded all my textbooks for that one.

    @teenulahari,

    It is cotton candy, right? I loved it until I heard that your mother used to call it as made out of the seller's beard.

    Neither my brother nor I attempted to sell any of our text books in exchange for candy. However, I caught my brother selling weekly Tamil magazines in exchange for something to eat. My mother was complaining about missing weekly magazines for a while as she used to sell them in exchange for money. I kept quiet until she found out about my brother's adventure. She was very mad at him and asked me, "Did you know about this?" and I answered, "Yes. But I didn't want my brother to face a punishment for that". Despite this truthful admission, I got punished along with my brother for not telling the truth on time.

    But I have other interesting stories to tell about my childhood. When I was four, I insisted on going to school and my mother took me to Ramakrishna Mission elementary school in T.Nagar. The Head Master told my mother I was too young to join Standard 1 and asked her to bring me a year later. Immediately, I took a coin I had in my pocket and offered to the Head Master. Both Head Master and my mother laughed and HM decided to admit me. After I grew up my brother used to make fun of me stating that I was the only one who knew how to bribe at the age of 4.

    The very first class test, I got a zero. Those days teachers used to put a dash next to 0 on either side of the numerator to indicate that the maximum possible score could be in three digits with a denominator 100. I genuinely thought my teacher was happy to draw a picture and showed to everyone on the street. When everyone laughed, I thought they were happy about my accomplishment until my mother scolded me for not only getting zero but also for showing it proudly to everyone on the street.

    Viswa
