Some Beggers Have Choice

A begger accosted a friend of mine in the slow Kolkatan traffic, obviously one with whom he was well acquainted, and this is a snippet of what transpired:

Beggar: Good afternoon, Dada!

Friend: How are you today . . . (thrusts Ten Ruppies note into her hand)

Beggar: Dada, I’m not taking Ten Ruppies today. My child is sick . . .

I’m very impressed with this woman.
