    hello

    smart kids these days

    my sister in law' s kid nicknamed dammulu is one smart kid he is just about eleven.
    i have a habit of giving the exact amount of rupees as gift when the kids in our family get good marks in their matric or plus two or graduation.
    now dammulu has a long way to go to reach tenth. he called up to say he has excelled in sports in the long jump section to four point three metres.
    now to just kid him i said so dammulu this tenth sure is a long way off. and since you have jumped this far i suggest i give you rupees four and paise thirty only?
    he was silent for just about a second
    and said
    please mami can you consider it in centimeters please...!
    wow ..fast thinking ..and luckily for me he didnt say in milli metres please...!
