A little boy wanted Rs.500 very badly and prayed for weeks, But nothing happened.
Finally he decided to write a letter to GOD requesting the Rs.500 .
When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to "God, India",
they decided to forward it to the Finance Minister of India as a joke.
The Finance Minister was so amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy Rs.200.
The Finance Minister thought this would appear to be a lot of money
to a little boy, and he did not want to spoil the kid.
The little boy was delighted with Rs.200, and decided to write a
thanking reply note to God, which reads:
"Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I
noticed that you sent it through the Finance Ministry in New Delhi, and
those donkeys deducted
Rs.300 as taxes!"
