Dr. Sunil: This is the third time in two months you have come to me complaining of stomach ache, Rakesh. Have you been eating frequently from outside?
Rakesh: I have my lunch from the school canteen, doctor.
Dr. Sunil: How is the food in taste and appearance?
Rakesh: The food tastes good, except that it is spicy sometimes. Often, it is soaked in excess oil.
Dr. Sunil: No wonder you are falling sick so often, Rakesh! Eating spicy food regularly upsets your digestive system. Does the oil in the food smell abnormal?
Rakesh: I don’t know really. But yes, my throat often aches after eating a meal that had excess oil.
Dr. Sunil: That is due to the poor quality of oil being used to make the food. Rakesh, you should stop eating from the canteen at once. If possible, eat home-cooked food and for a few weeks only eat light meals.
Rakesh: Okay, doctor. What can I include in my diet for the next few days?
Dr. Sunil: Have home-cooked food with minimum spices. Avoid over-intake of fibrous foods as they are heavy to digest. Have plenty of water and fruit. In a couple of weeks, your system will be back to normal.
Rakesh: Thank you, Doctor. I will avoid eating from outside henceforth.
Dr. Sunil: Yes, you should. Here are your medicines. In addition, please also engage in light exercise once a day so that you remain fit.
Rakesh: I will do that, doctor. Thank you for your time and consultation.
Dr. Sunil: Take care and get well soon Rakesh!

Mother: That does sound exceptional. I understand what you mean. Your school has a reputation for excelling in whatever it does.
Riya: Yes Mumma, it was! After that, we went to our class. There we played games with our teacher. It was great fun. We also had crib-making and classroom decoration competitions.
Mother: So, they kept y’all busy the whole day. Did they give y’all any snacks to eat?

Mother: So, I see you opened it in the school itself.
Riya: Yes! Everyone did. We were so engrossed in it that we did not even realize when the bell rang at the end of the day.
Mother: That’s very nice. Be sure to thank your teachers when you go to school next for all the effort they put in.

Rajesh: Excuse me, what is your name, sir?
Beggar: My name is Dinesh Kumar. Why do you ask? You don’t need my name to curse me.
Rajesh: I do not wish to curse you, Mr. Kumar. I never saw you here before. You intrigue me; therefore, I want to know more about you. Who are you and why are you begging here?
Beggar: I cannot recollect the last time somebody called me by that name.
Rajesh: Tell me something about yourself.
Beggar: You know my name. Many years ago, I used to be a successful businessman dealing with scrap metals. The business was booming and I was surrounded by friends. I got married to a woman I loved and she bore me two children. I was a very good father fulfilling every desire my children had.
Rajesh: What changed that?
Beggar: I had a daughter and a son. When they got married, things started changing. Both of them vied for my business and property which I bequeathed to them. Once my son had control of my business, he ousted me. My daughter too, whom I gave my palatial house, threw me and my wife out.
Rajesh: Where did you go from there?
Beggar: My friends deserted me since I had no money. So, I begged for a living making enough to buy us two meals a day. My wife eventually succumbed to illnesses leaving me all alone in this world. At this age, I cannot beg. Sometimes I wait for death to catch up with me.
