"Sir, do you have plain papers in your shop?"-A clerk asked a stationary shopkeeper.
"Yes. We have." "The price?"
"How much you need?" "Four rims".
"It will cost you Rs seventy per Rim".
"Ok, we need it for our office. Prepare the bills at the rate of Rs one hundred per Rim"-Clerk said hesitatingly.
The shopkeeper stared at him and said, "Stationeries to all offices is supplied from our shop. Please do not bother. Ok." He called in a loud voice", Kallu Beta, hand over to Babuji the old paper rims for government offices."
Though Babuji understood, yet gave a deaf ear to shopkeeper's statement. Said "Two rims will be returned within two/three days"
"Why not Babuji, It is as your own shop. Return as many rims as you wish at the rate of Rs 30 per rim. We are, no doubt, to serve you people," the Shopkeeper smiled bitterly.
