Our house help Sarala was telling us the other day: “Look at our country – dirty surroundings, garbage everywhere, people spitting and urinating on the pot-holed roads…
“And yesterday I was watching a foreign country on TV. Such clean and wide roads, people walking around systematically, not a speck of dust anywhere, everything in its proper place… oh… wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in such a country?”
Hubby: While you had gone out, it took me only two minutes to tidy up the living room. Why can’t you also keep the house spick and span?
Wifey: Oh that… I had deliberately left things a little messed up. If I clean up everything, what will you do?
