Mrs. Gulati, the class teacher of standard 10 in a small city of India, was taking a look at the group photograph of the class. She addressed the class and said: My dear students, when you look at this photograph after a few years, you will feel nostalgic. Some of you will point out and say, “Look, that’s Rohit, he now lives in the USA, and that’s Anita, she now works in the UK, and the boy there is Ravi. He went nowhere.”
Ravi, a little offended by this, shot back, “And here in Mrs. Gulati who is no more.”
After Pablo and Marta got into a domestic quarrel, Pablo said something which offended her and she left for her mother’s home. Pablo called her mother’s home after a few days but his mother-in-law said that Marta was in no mood to talk to him.
A few more days went by and Pablo called again only to be greeted by the same reply.
He called again after a couple of days and the mother-in-law said to him, “Why do you keep calling when you know the answer.”
Pablo replied, “Because I love to hear it again and again. It’s music to my ears!”
