Swami : (To a student) Did you get the Papayas?
Student : Yes, Swami.
Swami : (To another student) How many?
Student : Swami, our room got three.
Swami : How many boys are there in your room?
Student : Swami, 8 boys.
Swami : Each boy will get only a small piece. What happened to the remaining Papayas? Call the Warden. (To the Warden, Dr. Siva Sankara Sai) Why did you give only three Papayas for eight boys?
Warden : The small Papayas were given to each boy separately. In the case of big ones, limited numbers were distributed to each room.
Swami : All Papayas are small, not big. How many did you give?
Warden : Small number only, Swami.
Swami : (To a teacher) Did you get Papayas? I had asked them to send Papayas to all the hostels. (To a student) Did you get berries?
Student : No, Swami.
Swami : (To the Warden) Did you not give them?
Warden : Swami, we gave them for lunch.
Swami : How many for each student?
Warden : They were allowed to take as many as they wanted.
Swami : But this boy is telling that he did not get any.
Warden : (To the student) It was given during lunch three days back.
Student : Swami, that day I had only 3 berries.
Swami : Only three?
