Ram and Bhim were friends. Once Ram gave Bhim a hundred rupees and said, “Keep this for me. I shall claim it when the need arises.”
A year passed. Ram went to Bhim and said, “I need the money now.”
“Money? What money? I don’t remember your having given me any money, not even a paisa! Is there any witness to such transaction?” said Bhim.
Ram was shocked. He complained about Bhim’s treachery to the village chief.
Assuming a grave face, the chief exclaimed, “Bhim, there were twenty people present when Ram gave you the money!”
“No sir! There was nobody at that time,” stammered out a nervous Bhim.
